Limited-slip diff oil

I am going to be changing the oil in my limited slip diff. I went the my Benz dealer I inquired about getting the oil specific to the limited slip...since I know there is a special oil required. He said they didn't have it or weren't able to get it or something to that effect. He told me to go down to the GM parts place (dealer is part of larger GM dealership) and he said that they have limited slip oil. I have also seen oil at AutoZone labled as limited slip oil.

Question is: Do I have to use specific MB limited slip oil, or will any oil be fine so long as it is made for limited slip??

Dad bought it new, now I own it.
