The difference is that @frivoal says

> falling through a generic font family to whatever is after it, be it another generic, or a "real" font family

so Helvetica would be used

while I am thinking that if serif fails, we are on to [step 3 listed above](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4442#issuecomment-551170705)

so the implementation-specific, wide-coverage fallback font would be used.
