Default Calibration 50 Ohm question

So the oscilloscope needs calibrating, which needs a function generator...

The function generator also needs calibrating, and the manual is not in the clearest English.

First line in the calibration section of the manual is, "1. Push function switch to OFF position, load 50 ohms".

Is this '50 ohms' a dummy load, or is that the impedance of the cable which connects to a scope for example?

The generator is a Minipa MFG-4201 which is also known as an Escort EGC-3230 and a Kenwood FG-273

Including the first paragraph as an attachment.
