Section 5 says:

4.  The server reply should be discarded if any of the LI, Stratum,
    or Transmit Timestamp fields is 0 or the Mode field is not 4
    (unicast) or 5 (broadcast).

It should say:

4.  The server reply should be discarded if any of the VN, Stratum, 
    or Transmit Timestamp fields is 0 or the Mode field is not 4 
    (unicast) or 5 (broadcast).

Notes:

Zero is a legal value for the LI field under normal conditions. Zero is not legal for VN field, however.
