AR Sight Offset / canted weapon question

So, today at training a debate arose: what, if any, effect on accuracy or point of impact does canting a weapon have?

Not taking precision bolt guns or anything, but talking about AR's with red dot sights. If cant has negligible effect up close, what range would effects start to show?

Also talking about canting anywhere from 10 to 90 to beyond degrees.

My thoughts were that if my rifle is not canted during zeroing, but is then shot canted 90 degrees... there would be a change in point of impact. This given the same aiming point each time regardless of cant.

Help? Diagrams I can blow up their email boxes with?
