I don't understand what you are asking.

Xvbf creates a virtual framebuffer that exists in ram. You can't find
it via the function keys because it can't be mapped to physically. If
you want to 'see' what's going on with it, you could always set your
DISPLAY and take a screen shot.

Other than automating selenium playback I haven't done too much with
Xvbf so I'm not really any kind of expert. If you want a display you
can connect to and interact with, you probably want a vnc server.
