Throughout the document, when it says:

If the argument is a message-id and no such article exists, a 430
response MUST be returned.  If the argument is a number or is omitted
and the currently selected newsgroup is invalid, a 412 response MUST
be returned.  If the argument is a number and that article does not
exist in the currently selected newsgroup, a 423 response MUST be
returned.  If the argument is omitted and the current article number
is invalid, a 420 response MUST be returned.

It should say:

If the argument is a message-id and no such article exists, a 430
response MUST be returned.  If the argument is a number or is omitted,
and the currently selected newsgroup is invalid, a 412 response MUST
be returned.  If the argument is a number and that article does not
exist in the currently selected newsgroup, a 423 response MUST be
returned.  If the argument is omitted and the currently selected
newsgroup is valid but the current article number is invalid, a 420
response MUST be returned.

Notes:

A comma should be added after "omitted" in the second sentence. The detail about the validity of the currently selected newsgroup should be added to the last sentence.
Note that this remark applies to sections 6.2.1.2 (ARTICLE), 8.3.2 (OVER) and 8.5.2 (HDR). In the case of OVER and HDR, although the wording is different (ranges are used instead of article numbers), the changes to apply remain the same.
