Farfield point vortex (PV) boundary condition correction

I am testing some 2D airfoils in fluent.
I have NASA naca 0012 validation case as reference, and they propose a mesh 500 times chord length, but I've also read some other articles and journals, and the general rule seem to be 20-30 times chord.
They talk about "farfield point vortex (PV) boundary condition correction" if you want to reduce the distance of the farfield boundary, but I don't find any option in fluent which has to do with this.
I thought 20-30 times chord is far enough for an airfoil, but now I'm not very sure, and there are two graphics in nasa validation case which show 17% error with 30 times chord. . (http://turbmodels.larc.nasa.gov/naca..._ffeffect.html)
Could anyone help me?? ThanksĦĦ

Okay I just could not believe it when u said 17% error. And I went to the link and it says 0.17% error.
and FYI 15-30 chord lengths should be enough.
