IPN variables - what kind of failed transactions are retried

I'm developing a module that handles IPN calls from Paypal. From the documentation, I see that when txn_type = 'recurring_payment_skipped', the IPN will be retried up to 3 times, 5 days apart. But what about other transaction types, such as 'subscr_failed' and 'recurring_payment_failed'? Do they enter the retry process as well or are they sent once only?

Thanks!

Re: IPN variables - what kind of failed transactions are retried

I have a 

tx_type => subscr_failed 

 transaction I am dealing with right now.  On my end the communication from paypal also sends a 

retry_at => 

 with the date and time that it will retry which is in 5 days in my case.  This is the second one I have received.

 

So the answer at least for subscr_failed is that paypal will retry a few days later
