Interpreting V-32591:

The SQL Server agent can be configured to send alerts and messages to operators. Operators can be individuals, or mailing groups. It is highly recommended to use a mailing group so that if an individual is not available when an alert is raised, someone else can take appropriate actions. It is also advised to configure a fail safe operator.
