It would Skype bypasses MFA while Office outlook, word, excel, etc... hits MFA. Is this normal? are their separate requirements for MFA for Skype?

SfB still doesnt support modern auth. If you need official answer check here:


Lync Online tenants do not yet support modern authentication enablement for production use. Since modern authentication is a prerequisite for MFA, Lync online clients will not yet be able to support MFA.        Lync Online client will continue to use and work with the Microsoft Online Sign-in Assistant
