explain VM network communication path when they connected into same port group from same ESX host

My Question are

1.  In case  I have ESX host with only single Physical adapter attached and that  adapter is goes down  because of some issues , still  the internal network between VM’s

( Standard Virtual Switch ) is still functioning ? 

2. Is it data traffic flow between VMs  connected into same port group from same ESX host is  any relations or dependency  ?

3. What kind of Bride is created between Virtual Standard switch and Physical network adapter


From vSphre  Public documentation I understood Virtual Standard switch  related to types of network.

  1. Public - When traffic is moving out of the  Physical Ethernet Adapter called as Public network traffic
  2. Private – When traffic flow between VM’s connected to same port group from same ESX host is called Private Traffic.
