CEPH Nautilus mon_host in [global] vs mon_host in [client]

At this time, here is the way monitors are registered in ceph.conf (an excerpt only):

         host = VMHost4
         mon addr =

         host = VMHost3
         mon addr =

         host = VMHost2
         mon addr =

If I understand correctly, the new method in Nautilus is to use:

mon_host =

What is the proper way to edit the ceph.conf

Can I just edit the mon_addr = and remove the port number? Should I remove the monitors from the [client] section altogether? Should I leave both in there?
