l2vpn redudancy initial-delay


So I have attempted the below config:


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

The explanation of the command "initial-delay"

commit                           Commit the configuration changes to running

root                                Exit to the global configuration mode
show                              Show contents of configuration

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