If the authentication fails, Dovecot typically waits 0-2 seconds before sending back the "authentication failed" reply. If this field is set, no such delay is done. This is commonly used with [[PasswordDatabase/ExtraFields/Proxy|proxying]] and [[PasswordDatabase/ExtraFields/Host|login referrals]].

Note that if PAM is used as the passdb, it adds an extra delay which can't be removed.
