If you have a san (iscsi/fc), or local drives connected to raid controller (not in pass-through mode), ReFS is NOT supported, and you can experience total dataloss, with no possibility of recovery.

Which is why they chose to go with the blank "unsupported" statement instead - what other choice they have?
The "Certified for Windows Server 2016" logo identifies hardware components, devices, drivers, systems and solutions that meet Microsoft standards for compatibility and recommended practices with the Windows Server 2016 operating system. Products and Solutions that have earned the Certified for Windows Server logo are also fully supported in Hyper-V environment.
