I got 1 answer, and that what to look at the rfc, and from rfc1179 you can read,

7.9 S - Symbolic link data

      | S | device | SP | inode | LF |
      Command code - 'S'
      Operand 1 - Device number
      Operand 2 - Inode number

   This command is used to record symbolic link data on a Unix system so
   that changing a file's directory entry after a file is printed will
   not print the new file. It is ignored if the data file is not
   symbolically linked.
