setfacl(1) Recursively?

Hi all,

I'm simply trying to set ACLs on a few directories but don't see an option
to recursively apply this to the whole directory's contents. Does applying
the ACL to a directory inherently apply it to all other files and folders
within the directory? I've browsed the man page and handbook but can't find
the info. Thanks.
