Section 1.5.1 says:

When an SNMP message contains a
   payload which expects a response (those messages that contain a
   Confirmed Class PDU [RFC3411]), then the receiver of such messages is
   authoritative.  When an SNMP message contains a payload which does
   not expect a response (those messages that contain an Unconfirmed
   Class PDU [RFC3411]), then the sender of such a message is
   authoritative.

It should say:

When an SNMP message contains a
   payload which expects a response (those messages that contain a
   Confirmed Class PDU [RFC3411]), then the receiver of such messages is
   authoritative.  When an SNMP message contains a payload which does
   not expect a response (those messages that contain an Unconfirmed
   Class PDU [RFC3411]), then the sender of such a message is
   non-authoritative.

Notes:

In both cases the receiver was classified as "authoritative".
--VERIFIER NOTES--
The initial text says it correctly: the sender of such a message is authoritative
