Vmware Link State Only Vs Beacon Probe

I have done some reading about Vmware Link State Only Vs Beacon Probe.
Not sure about the difference from Vmware administrator perspective, since if there is a failure somewhere in the Network then it does not matter which detection option you have used.
it states that to use Beacon, it is recommended to have 3 or more physical Nics
Any clarification on this topic ?

Thank you
