The question s about the legend retrieved from qgis using a
getlegendgraphic request when add a wms to a canvas.
The trouble is issuing when the ortophoto is grouped using a
"wms_layer_group" setting and has no any style defined in it.

As example, you can you try to connect to our mapserver wms of
ortophotos using the last qgis 2.16 or 2.14.5 ?

This is the url:
http://www502.regione.toscana.it/wmsraster/com.rt.wms.RTmap/wms?map=wmsofc
and the layer to choose is the "rt_ofc.10k88"

As you can see the qgis will retrieve ALL the legends of ALL the
vector layers available in the same wms service.
I don't understand if the wrong response is from mapserver or from
qgis that wrongly require the legend to the parent layer, rretrieving
so all the legends from all the layers availables.
