IPMI not working with Network Bonding

To be honest, I have never used IPMI with bonded NICs but seeing as
the bond is done at the software level (in the OS) I don't understand
why IPMI would stop working?

Its running at a lower level? Yes the switch may have to be set to
bond two ports together but the switch should still recognise that
there is more than one MAC address behind a port bonded or not?
(Switch dependant obviously)

I would be curious to here why IPMI wouldn't work with bonded NICs.
