Section C.2.4.1 Lear says:

   This request should be
   seen as coming from the immediate destination of the test frame
   stream. (i.e. the phantom router (Figure 2) or the end node if
   adjacent network routing is being used.) It is assumed that the
   router will cache the MAC address of the requesting device.  The ARP
   request should be sent 5 seconds before the test frame stream starts
   in each trial.  Trial lengths of longer than 50 seconds may require
   that the router be configured for an extended ARP timeout.
          +--------+            +------------+
          |        |            |  phantom   |------ P LAN A
IN A------|   DUT  |------------|            |------ P LAN B

It should say:

   This request should be
   seen as coming from the immediate destination of the test frame
   stream. (i.e. the phantom router (Figure 4) or the end node if
   adjacent network routing is being used.) It is assumed that the
   router will cache the MAC address of the requesting device.  The ARP
   request should be sent 5 seconds before the test frame stream starts
   in each trial.  Trial lengths of longer than 50 seconds may require
   that the router be configured for an extended ARP timeout.
          +--------+            +------------+
          |        |            |  phantom   |------ P LAN A
IN A------|   DUT  |------------|            |------ P LAN B
          |        |   OUT A    |  router    |------ P LAN C
          +--------+            +------------+
