Long/Short Equity Hurdle Rates

hey guys, had a quick question: for long/short equity hedge funds, are the hurdle rates used to calculate incentive fees (the 20% in the typical "2/20" structure) 0% (since funds claim to produce "absolute returns")? Or is there a typical industry-benchmark of say 6%. Thanks!
