Delegated Access Token Rate Limits

I have a question regarding the new delegated tokens feature:
 
For each delegated token, does it have a separate rate limit from the parent app token that was used to generate it, or must all delegated tokens share the same base rate limit as the top-level token/app?
 
There is nothing in the documentation about rate limiting behavior when using delegated tokens, and nothing in the rate limiting documentation.

This is an accepted solution.

We went ahead and did our own testing.

 

I can confirm the same rate limit is shared across all delegated tokens.  Since the rate limit is shared, the only benefit of delegated tokens is to restrict the API scope/permission.

 

I hope this helps others who are wondering the same thing without having to create a POC.
