The BOL page for SQL 2012 - "Back Up the Service Master Key" has incorrect example code.

The example code backs up a database master key, not the service master key. 

See previous version BOL pages for correct code:

It looks like an editor tried to help but copied in code from the wrong location. I have corrected the example. Thank you for reporting this. This will show up online in a couple of weeks. Rick Byham.
