Are Palm Trees Tolerant to Juglone?

I have a black walnut and have recently planted some palm trees near it. Specifically, a Windmill palm. I cannot seem to find out if palms are tolerant to the chemical (Juglone), which black walnuts secrete.

You can, however, grow the palm in a container or locate it at least 50 feet or more away from the black walnut. This article will help with tolerant plants:
