    Clients MUST generate an all-zero payload for RELAY_BEGIN_DIR cells,
    and relays MUST ignore the payload.
+   In response to a RELAY_BEGIN_DIR cell, relays respond either with a
+   RELAY_CONNECTED cell on succcess, or a RELAY_END cell on failure. They
+   MUST send a RELAY_CONNECTED cell all-zero payload, and clients MUST ignore
+   the payload.
    [RELAY_BEGIN_DIR was not supported before Tor; clients
    SHOULD NOT send it to routers running earlier versions of Tor.]
