Does freebsd have limit to bind IP address on one network card?

What is the advantage to use one ip on one NIC instead of several ip addresses to bind a NIC?

You can use "ifconfig ... alias" to bind more than one IP address to a NIC; you must you a different subnet mask, however (usually 0xfffffff). You also can use netgraph (ng_many2one?) to trunk several NICs together for fault-tolerance.

It was not clear to me which capability you were asking for, or maybe it simply is the case that you're asking why someone would do this?
