Interfaces question

I have a question regarding the way samba 2.2x handles the "interfaces =" 
line of smb.conf.  Say I have this line:

	"interfaces = eth0 eth1 eth1:0 ppp*"

Suppose when I start samba, ppp0 and ppp1 exist. According to the docs, 
they'll both be used.  But what happens if later, ppp2 and 3 come up? Will 
they be used? In addition, what happens if ppp0 goes DOWN, and then comes 
back up with a different IP address and subnet?

Please help :)
