Differences between "net ping -node node-x " and "net ping -vserver vserver-x -lif lif-x"?

I used these two commands to ping the same destination, the former can ping the destination IP, the later one can not.

I know that this probably because the former makes the ping via different lif than "vserver-x -lif lif-x". 

 

My question is, which lif the former one ping the destiantion from?

 

Thanks for your inputs!

If you ping from a node only without specifying an SVM (vserver), the node will use it's own management LIF to run the PING.
