Notes:

There is an error in the Header line. It should be
"OPCODE=IQUERY, ID=997, QR=1" because the OPCODE does not have a
value of RESPONSE (see Section 4.1.1).

Section 3.2.1 says:

TTL             a 32 bit signed integer that specifies the time interval
                that the resource record may be cached before the source
                of the information should again be consulted.  Zero
                values are interpreted to mean that the RR can only be
                used for the transaction in progress, and should not be
                cached.  For example, SOA records are always distributed
                with a zero TTL to prohibit caching.  Zero values can
                also be used for extremely volatile data.

Notes:

Conflicting descriptions of the type of TTL field.

Section 3.2.1 says "a 32 bit signed integer" while section 4.1.3 says "a 32 bit unsigned integer".

Notes:

"of the root." makes no sense here.

[...]

Note the use of the \ character in the SOA RR to specify the responsible
person mailbox "Action.domains@ISI.EDU".

Notes:

The introductory sentence and the following zone definition both correctly refer to the zone ISI.EDU. But the closing sentence noting the usage of "\." in the mailbox name erroneously expands the example to "Action.domains@E.ISI.EDU" instead of "Action.domains@ISI.EDU".

Section 3.3.5 says:

It should say:

The recommended policy for dealing with MF RRs found in
a master file is to reject them, or to convert them to MX RRs with a
preference of 10.

Notes:

3.3.5 about MF says "dealing with MD". It should probably say "dealing with MF". I assume this is a copy and paste error from earlier section about MD.
