PNA or PNA-X DC bleed path for RF connectors?

Hello,

We have a DC bleed path requirement for RF connections, where we need to have a DC path to ground for ESD reasons, which can be accomplished by attaching a special 0dB attenuator with that provision. However, if the test instrument is already internally grounded, then there is no need for this special attenuator. My question is whether the PNA and PNA-X's would require this special attenuator to be added to the RF connections or not.

Thanks,
rok
