[gmx-users] Role of epsilon_rf in implicit solvation

I've got yet another question about the implicit solvent models used in
Gromacs. I saw in some simulations that epsilon_rf was set to 0 meaning
infinite dielectric constant. The manual is not clear about this, since
it is mentioned in combination with reaction field only.
So is this epsilon_rf also used in combination in implicit solvent
models regarding the dielectric constant beyond cut-off? If yes, what
would be an appropriate value for this constant?
