Section 2.7 says:

The first two sources are interrelated and could result in a test
packet with finite delay being reported as lost.  Type-P-One-way-
Packet-Loss is 0 if the test packet does not arrive, or if it does
arrive and the difference between Src timestamp and Dst timestamp is
greater than the "reasonable period of time", or loss threshold.  

It should say:

The first two sources are interrelated and could result in a test
packet with finite delay being reported as lost.  Type-P-One-way-
Packet-Loss is 1 if the test packet does not arrive, or if it does
arrive and the difference between Src timestamp and Dst timestamp is
greater than the "reasonable period of time", or loss threshold.

Notes:

Type-P-One-way-Packet-Loss is 1 if the test packet does not arrive, according to section 2.4 Definition in RFC2680.
