l2vpn redudancy initial-delay

 

So I have attempted the below config:

 

  l2vpn
   pw-class test
    encapsulation mpls
     redundancy
      initial-delay 120
     !
    !
    backup disable never
   !
   xconnect group Xconns
    p2p test
     interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0/10
     neighbor ipv4 1.1.1.1 pw-id 1
      pw-class test
      backup neighbor 2.2.2.2 pw-id 2
      !
     !
    !
   !
  !

In my understanding "Initial delay before activating the redundant PW" means that when the primary PW goes down there will be a delay before activating the backup PW. After doing a lab on VIRL with IOSXRv and IOSXR9000v the backup PW comes up immediately when the primary is detected as down. Have i got this wrong?

After scouring cisco.com and the internet in general I found no documentation (???) elaborating what the command actually does. Can anyone shed some light?
