It can't, but that doesn't matter.

VXLAN emulates a single layer 2 broadcast domain: conceptually, a series of 
machines all plugged into the same Ethernet switch. This kind of network 
*isn't* reliable: you can lose Ethernet frames. There's no reason to require 
reliability from VXLAN, and it would increase VXLAN's overhead to add it in. If 
you need reliability, the encapsulated transport will provide it for you 
exactly as it does on a non-encapsulated network.
