Active Directory bridgehead server

By judycolick ·
I am using a textbook which has two apparently conflicting statements:

First, "You can configure a preferred bridgehead server or multiple preferred bridgehead servers to control replication...."
Second (next paragraph), "Multiple bridgehead servers cannot be configured."

The second could be a typo; however, the book is excellent and I wonder whether the authors had some context in mind. Do you have any ideas why/where both statements could be correct?

a bridgehead server typically is a focal point for collecting and disseminating information such as replication between sites.

You can designated a bridgehead server for AD replication in AD sites and services.

heres a Technet article:

You can configure multiple Bridgehead servers in a site
in fact it is recommended to do so, in the event one is not available.
Under normal circumstances the KCC will choose the DC to replicate to and adapt to replicate to another if needed. If you choose to manually configure only one DC in a site, The KCC will not designate another as a Bridgehead server in the event replication fails with the manually designated DC.
