Do I need to configure Transfer Family Availability Zones?


In reading up on Transfer Family resiliency here, it says "Transfer Family supports up to 3 Availability Zones". The way that is written makes it sound like it can be a single AZ, two, or three. When I create my Transfer Family Server for SFTP, I cannot find any options for configuring resiliency. I assume given it is a managed service that the resiliency is handled for me behind the scenes, but just wanted to confirm given how the documentation is worded.
