when NFS use TCP?

on book Sybex - Linux Network Server - 2002 say:

"NFS is a remote procedure call (RPC) protocol that runs on top of UDP and IP."

so I was used: rpcinfo -p

and see TCP in use

The nfs mount option proto=tcp makes nfs run over tcp. Default is udp.
Type mount to see how your nfs directory is mounted.
