The group commit definition in the Glossary says the following:

"When the binary log is enabled, you typically also set the
configuration option sync_binlog=0, because group commit for the binary
log is only supported if it is set to 0."


I think that statement refers to the pre-5.6 behavior and is no longer

How to repeat:
Read the group commit definition. Compare with the information in https://dev.mysql.com/worklog/task/?id=5223
