[Help-gnutls] Does verify_peers2 check cert expiration?

After calling gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2(), I call 
gnutls_certificate_get_peers(), take the first cert, and call 
gnutls_x509_crt_get_activation_time() and 
gnutls_x509_crt_get_expiration_time(), and verify that the certificate has 
not expired.

Am I doing too much work? The man page for 
gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2() isn't quite clear if it does any more 
validation besides verifying the cert chain.
