Behavior of SIO_FLUSH

When SIO_FLUSH socket ioctl is used in a Windows environment (in user space), I am confused as to what happens. Does this: (1) completely discard the data from the TCP/IP send queue into a black hole, or (2) push the queued send data across the connection until the buffer is empty, or (3) something else? Thanks!

With Windows, you can never be sure. However, this(search for SIOFLUSH) says it discards the send queue associated with the socket. This is what I also expect when I use SIO_FLUSH
