Veeam and VMware: Networking

We use Veeam 6.5. What virtual network does Veeam use to backup our VMs?

Options are:
1. VM Network: This is the vSwitch that handles the VM network traffic. This would mean Veeam connects to each VM individually based by its IP or DNS name.

2. VMkernel for NFS. This is the vSwitch responsible for NFS storage traffic to our NetApp.

3. VMkernel for vMotion or VMkernel for Management. These two VMkernels share the same vSwitch.

Assuming the host management interface is also on VM Network, it would use that.  It communicates with the host and the host only, it wouldn't connect to your NFS storage directly or to the VM directly.
