[Openid-specs-ab] What is the relationship between scope and user info claims ?

So when I use userinfo:claims I can specify that returning an attribute is optional.
What it is the default when using scope, is everything default or required ?

If it is 'optional' (which seems reasonable) then userinfo:claims could be used to raise the 'necessity' to return an attribute ?
If it is 'required' then can userinfo:claims be used to lower the 'necessity' ?
