Section 9.2 says:

group-command = "GROUP" [WS newsgroup-name]

It should say:

group-command = "GROUP" WS newsgroup-name


The ABNF syntax for the GROUP command makes its argument optional. However, that is not the case. Section 6.1.1 clearly shows that the argument (a newsgroup name) is mandatory.
