[LAD] SMPTE and jackd

Hi folks.

I've got a question about SMPTE frames and jack period size.
In the "worst case" of 30 frames/second, each frame spans 1/30 seconds.
Does that mean that if jackd is called such that (period size)/(rate)
> (1/30) seconds, we will drop SMPTE frames?

Large period sizes are rare these days, but this is still a possible
scenario and I want to understand it properly.
