Section 3.9.1 says:

   There is one special case.  If there is exactly
   one entry in the request, and it has an address family identifier of
   zero and a metric of infinity (i.e., 16), then this is a request to
   send the entire routing table.


It should say:

   There is one special case. If there is exactly
   one entry in the request, (in addition to any authentication entry)
   and it has an address family identifier of zero and a metric of
   infinity (i.e., 16), then this is a request to send the entire 
   routing table.

Notes:

Note that in RFC 2453 an authentication header is not considered to be an RTE.

There was obviously some confusion on this point and the additional parenthetic text clarifies that if an authentication entry is also present (as the first entry) then it is not included in the special case described in section 3.9.1.
