   Each SNTP packet is transmitted as tht TS-Userdata
   parameter of a T-UNITDATA Request primitive.

Section 4 says:

   MSF      Rugby (UK) Radio 60 kHz

It should say:

   MSF      Anthorn (UK) Radio 60 kHz

Notes:

The MSF transmitter was relocated from Rugby to Anthorn, in Cumbria, on 2007 March 31. See http://www.npl.co.uk/science-+-technology/time-and-frequency/npl-ensures-accurate-uk-time-for-the-next-15-years

Section 5 says:

T  = ((T2 - T1) + (T3 - T4)) / 2.

It should say:

T  = ((T2 - T1) + (T4 - T3)) / 2.

Notes:

Because T4 always will be greater than (or equal to) T3

For example assume
T1 = 1
T2 = 3
T3 = 4
T4 = 6
Case 1: As per the given formula the local clock offset will be
T = ((3 - 1) + (4 - 6)) / 2 = 0 which is wrong
Case 2: As per the corrected formula the local clock offset will be
T = ((3 - 1)+ (6 - 4)) / 2 = 2 which is correct
