The NSX-V DFW is stateful, not stateless, and offers greater protection that use stateless ACLs or reflexive ACLs.

Maybe for better explanation, it is a Stateful vs. Stateless Firewalls

NSX DFW are stateless FW which act like ACL. But the different are, it can use many object other than IP address. Which make it good for east west traffic and a goldilock FW.
