Section 7.6.1.2 says:

If the keyword is not recognised, or if an argument is specified and
the keyword does not expect one, a 501 response code MUST BE
returned.  If the keyword is recognised but the server does not
maintain the information, a 503 response code MUST BE returned.

It should say:

If the keyword is not recognised, or if an argument is specified and
the keyword does not expect one, a 501 response code MUST be
returned.  If the keyword is recognised but the server does not
maintain the information, a 503 response code MUST be returned.

Notes:

So as to be homogeneous with the rest of the document, lower-case letters should be used for the verb after "MUST".
