Section 2 says:

CNAME:  "It is traditional to refer to the owner of a CNAME record as
   'a CNAME'.  This is unfortunate, as 'CNAME' is an abbreviation of
   'canonical name', and the owner of a CNAME record is most certainly
   not a canonical name."  (Quoted from [RFC2181], Section 10.1.1)

It should say:

CNAME:  "It is traditional to refer to the label of a CNAME record as
   'a CNAME'.  This is unfortunate, as 'CNAME' is an abbreviation of
   'canonical name', and the label of a CNAME record is an alias, not
   a canonical name."  (Quoted from [RFC2181], Section 10.1.1)

Notes:

Incorrect quote from RFC 2181.
