Answer: The use of isopropyl alcohol (or beverage)

The permanent marker can often be removed with isopropyl alcohol. First, assuming you still have markers, try using isopropyl alcohol to remove it from the test surface. If this works, then try on the bottom of the table to make sure it does not damage the finish. If it is safe, then move on.
