Bulkhead for vent and fire code

I need to add a bulkhead for dryer and bathroom fan venting. The bulkhead will be next to a load bearng wall.
normally the load bearing walls have type x drywall. I'm wondering if I need to put type x on the wall before framing the bulkhead and then putting normal drywall or if I can frame the bulkhead right next to the wall studs and then encase the whole lot in type x instead.
