The key point is that it makes ovs vxlan tunnel can make use of the fdb table of lower vxlan device.

The fdb table can be configurable or mac learning from outside.

For the broadcast example.  In the ovs, it can only achieve this through multiple output actions to simulate the broadcast.

ovs-ofctl add-flow br0 in_port=server1,dl_dst=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff,actions=set_field:172.168.0.1->tun_dst,output:vxlan,\

    set_field:172.168.0.2->tun_dst,output:vxlan.

But there are some limits for the number of output actions.
