As far as I know, layer 3 switch in CEF forwarding maintains FIB and adjacency tables. Fib table is constructed from routing table and gives next hop info while adjacency table is used for creating layer 2 header. Consider an example where host in vlan 10 wants to talk to host in vlan 20. Packet enters at layer 3 switch and it does FIB look up for the next hop which would SVI for vlan 20. After that it does adj look up for layer 2 header and forwards the packet. My question why is FIB look up required, it can directly forward the packet, looking at adj table as it has entry for the destination IP address and corresponding mac address.
