Headers. Toe nailing + end nailing?

I was looking for the code requirements for nail schedules headers but can't seem to find them. Should they be end nailed plus toe nailed? End nailed thru the king studs and bottom double top plate plus toe nailed to kings also?

We always end nail, nail king to the plate and then toenail  or nail through the plate into the header

6-8 nails through each will be plenty..

Thanks Frammer.  Do you end nail the king to the header?
