How to use "Entail" in context?

Entail is a legal term that refers to the relationship between two legal instruments. The first document, called the principal instrument, creates a legal obligation on the second document, called the entailing document. If the principal instrument is not fulfilled, the entailing document may be used to enforce the principal instrument's obligations.

Entailment is a key concept in law because it can provide a pathway for a legal obligation to continue even if the original source of that obligation has been dissolved. For example, if I make a promise to give you a gift, the gift is my primary obligation.
