Re: spoof

The Palo Alto uses the routing table to help determine if the address is spoofed.

Select the check box to enable protection against IP address spoofing. PAN-OS uses the routing table on the device to verify if the source IP of the traffic is arriving on the appropriate interface. If this is not the case the packet will be discarded.

 

Thus this is not applicable in v-wire mode that has no routing table and is just a virtual wire connecting two devices.
