Local annotation interfaces

I have the following EJB defined:

In my Local annotation, I specify the interfaces. But in reality, the AccountService is a super interface of AccountManager. Do I need to have the AccountService as well in my implements clause? I think it is superflous. But what does the EJB spec says?

Ideally, you should use EJB only via its interfaces. I think that AccountManager is sufficient.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
