Hold on... aren't Sautantrika and Svatantrika different schools?
They are and I presume the OP meant to refer to the Svatantrika school of Rangtong Mandhyamaka view.
The sautrantika view states that apparent reality are those things and concepts that cannot perform a function. Genuine reality is that which is directly perceived and are things that can perform a function.
There are two views within the rangtong madhyamaka view. One is the svatantrika view, the other is the prasangika view.
The svatantrika view states that apparent reality is illusionlike phenomena but that genuine reality is emptiness like space.
The prasangika view states that apparent reality is whatever ordinary people believe truly exists but that genuine reality is free from the complexity of extremes, beyond all thought and expression.
The svatantrika and prasangika views are both "rangtong" madhyamaka views since they both state that genuine reality is self-empty.
