Xendesktop 5.6 with Windows XP on Vmware 5.5

Hi,
Need to get some best practices regarding NIC type for XD environment.
I have below,
XD5.6 FP1
Vmware 5.5

Wanting to leverage XD MCS and SOE vm(catalogue) are Windows XP
What type of Vmware NIC is the best practice?
I know with PVS technology, it must be vmxnet3.
Is this the same case with MCS?
I've just tested it with Flexible NIC and it seems to be working OK at present.
Please advise

(unless you can find measurable improvement from e1000)
(except the situations when linux guest OS does not have vmxnet3 driver pre-installed)

It's always recommended to use the VMXNET3 interface for any virtual machine if supported on VMware vSphere.
