What should a "free" relay show in this auction or one similar

LHO is dealer and the auction proceeds:

1NT-2*-X-?

*2 shows either a minor or a major and a minor, and is a relay to 2, which may be passed with a single suited diamond hand, or overcaller can bid a major to show a 2-suiter, or 3 clubs to sign off in the minor.

X is staymanesque.

So advancer is "off the hook" regarding his 2D call. When should they bid 2D anyway?

 

Should they have a certain number of points?   The relay suit?   Support for the relay suit?

 

Is there a general rule on "free" relay bids?
