Thanks Joe,
   
   And I see in the Doc CD, no ip pim dm-fallback is configured when the interface is in sparse-mode.
   
  Does PIM DM fallback occurs in Sparse mode also? I was thinking it occurs only on sparse-dense-mode.
   
  Thanks.

  This will depend on how you have things configured. 
What groups are the rp-candidates advertising for?

Remember that your mapping agent is responsible for
receiving the rp announcements from the rp-candidates
and then arbitrating conflicts. The mapping agent is
responsible for announcing the winner of the RP
'election'. 

Now, if you have multiple mapping agents it is
possible for each mapping agent to select a different
rp for the same group. The mapping agents work
independently of one another.
