Should my monitor session destination interface be a member of the vlan it is monitoring?

I understand how to setup the span port to monitor a vlan, but does it make sense that the destination interface should not be a member of that vlan to reduce the ammount of broadcast traffic to that port?

thanks!

When a port is a destination port, there really is no VLAN memebership. The only traffic sent out a destination port will be the monitored traffic.
