Setting a Reference Scale Question ?

I have a question for you. It is about setting a reference scale in the Data Frame properties  that I am trying to understand. I am using ArcGIS 10.5.1 .


Working with data frame reference scales—Help | ArcGIS Desktop 



So if you are preparing a map and you have a lot of labels that needed to be shown in a specific area .

So from what I understand to set the reference scale, it has to be in the Data View or in the Layout View ?


So if I am working on a small area in the Data Frame properties and set  at 1:24,000 in the Data Frame first and then

change it over to the Layout view.


So if you see the labels are bigger than the 24,000. Do I need to go back to the Data Frame Properties and hit the Annotation Group and create a new group. So for example you have a mountain peaks and you want them to set at 

24,000 or lower ? And enable the check the mountain peaks on ?


Is that what I should be doing  ?


Your feedback much appreciate.


P.S. You can give me a call should you have more questions ---  719-281-2119 from 8 am to 4:40 pm Monday to Friday.

P.S. As of 30 JANUARY 2019, I fixed the link and it was broken...
