Section 2.3.2.1 says:

expansion of the A-label form to a U-label may produce strings that are
much longer than the normal 63 octet DNS limit (potentially up to 252
characters)
^^^^^^^^^

It should say:

expansion of the A-label form to a U-label may produce strings that are
much longer than the normal 63 octet DNS limit (potentially up to 252
octets)
^^^^^

Notes:

The sentence should have used "octets" instead of "characters".

A separate erratum was files for possible tightening of the upper bound in a future revision of this document.
