Section 3.3.2 says:

[[  first paragraph  ]]

   The bootstrap information message (with the in-band bootstrap scheme)
|  and direct time synchronization response message (with the indirect
   time synchronization scheme) both need to be signed by the sender.
   [...]

It should say:

   The bootstrap information message (with the in-band bootstrap scheme)
|  and direct time synchronization response message (with the direct
   time synchronization scheme) both need to be signed by the sender.
   [...]

Notes:

Rationale: most likely a typo, but confusing:
why would the _indirect_ schem use the _direct_ scheme's messages?
