Section 3.2.1 says:

... first paragraph:

   If a relaying or serving agent receives an article from an injecting
|  or serving agent that is part of the same news server, it MAY leave
      ^^^^^^^
   the Path header field of the article unchanged.  [...]

It should say:

   If a relaying or serving agent receives an article from an injecting
|  or relaying agent that is part of the same news server, it MAY leave
      ^^^^^^^^
   the Path header field of the article unchanged.  [...]

Notes:

Rationale:
Cf. the definition of agent roles presented in Section 1 and the
first paragraph of Section 3:
Serving agents only forward to reading agents, and in that step,
the articles are not modified in any way.
