In the 11th Gen rules it explains double team as:
Double-team: If a defensive player other than the marker is within three meters of any pivot of the thrower without also being within three meters of and guarding (II.G) another offensive player, it is a double team. However, merely running across this area is not a double team.

IIG: Guarding: A defender is guarding an offensive player when they are within three meters of that offensive player and are reacting to that offensive player.

My interpretation is that the 2nd defender must be facing and actively defending the second offensive player.  If the 2nd defender is not facing the 2nd player and is reacting to the throwers movements only then it is still a double team even if the 2nd offender is within 3 meters. 
Could someone clarify this for me please?

I think it goes something like this (assuming you are a defender):

Feel free to double team a player possessing the disc if the player you're defending comes within 3 meters of the disc.  Otherwise, you need to be at least 3 meters from the player with the disc.

Re: Seppo:
That is contrary to the wording of the rules where it states they must be guarding the other player.

Don't confuse guarding with facing.  You can often guard a player without facing them.  You can face thrower or be at an oblique angle as long as you are defending your offensive player from attaining the disc.  You just have to be aware of their location.  Additional point - your offensive player doesn't have to be within 3 meters, they could easily be 15-20 feet from the thrower and still be legitimately guarded from within the "Double Team" radius.
