Is the parallelism documentation for DepthOfCoverage correct?

http://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/gatkdocs/org_broadinstitute_sting_gatk_walkers_coverage_DepthOfCoverage.html states (bold is my emphasis):

Parallelism options

This tool can be run in multi-threaded mode using this option.

TreeReducible (-nt)

Yet when I run the GATK with -nt, I get an error that -nt is not supported (truncated to save space):

ERROR A USER ERROR has occurred (version 2.8-1-g932cd3a): ERROR MESSAGE: Invalid command line: Argument nt has a bad value: The analysis DepthOfCoverage aggregates results by interval. Due to a current limitation of the GATK, analyses of this type do not currently support parallel execution. Please run your analysis without the -nt option.
