Clarifying my own question.

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6960#section- says:

The purpose of the ResponderID information is to allow clients to
find the certificate used to sign a signed OCSP response.  Therefore,
the information MUST correspond to the certificate that was used to
sign the response.

The responder MAY include certificates in the certs field of
BasicOCSPResponse that help the OCSP client verify the responder's
I understand that it is not mandatory to send the OCSP response signer
certificate in the OCSP response.  So in such cases, where to find the OCSP
response signer certificate?  That is my question.
