If the connection between the device and the broker is terminated, the broker
publishes the testament for each registered subscriber.
If a subscriber does not have a connection to the broker when the connection between
device and broker is terminated, the "testament" for the subscriber is lost. When the
connection to the broker is reestablished, the subscriber first receives the "testament"
with the "Retain" flag.
For more information on the flag "Retain", refer to section Topic settings (Page 66).
