Basically when working with DFTC you have two choices:

1. Continuous 2/3 pulldown and inconsistent time code/A frames, i.e., no
00/05 pattern


2. Discontinuous 2/3 pulldown, but consistent time code/A frame sequences

The important point to remember is that an A frame only exists on tape -
any film frame can be an A frame. It's the clients choice of which
situation he wants to create by using DFTC.
