Push result notification in connectionless mode

Does anyone have any idea how push message result notification works in connectionless mode.
As far as I can make out from WAP Push specifications, in the connectionless case the push message result notification is sent by the PPG to the PI after the message is transmitted successfully (because there is no way of knowing if delivery was successful)
So how do you know if the message was transmitted successfully?
There is no mechanism for getting a result back from WDP (only in the case of an error)
So how does the PPG know if the message travelled down through the WAP stack and into an SMSC (for example) successfully.
Or is this implementation specific?
Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated.

You don't know in connectionless mode. You need to use confirmed push in connection-oriented mode. The client in this case is required to ACK the push; then the PPG can return a notification to the PI when it receives this ACK.
Not sure if this mode is supported yet in any WAP server released.
