CalDav-Server for native MAC Support, address book(s)

Which GroupWise-address books are synchronized via a CalDav-Server ?
Is it just one ? Or all ? Or can one configure, which books should be synchronized ?

Limitation in the OSX app: http://sabre.io/dav/clients/osx-addressbook/

Single addressbook
Affects: OS X 10.6 until OS X 10.10

OS X addressbook can only ever work with 1 address book. Even though the CardDAV standard makes it easy for users to own more than one addressbook, this is not supported.

Unfortunately this means that if a user has more than one addressbook in their account, only the 'first' will show up, and contacts from other addressbooks are completely hidden to the user.

This can cause for a lot of confusion, and there is no obvious solution other than simply enforce a 1 address book limit for users.
