Section 5.1. says:

A Public-Key Encrypted Session Key packet holds the session key used 
to encrypt a message.

It should say:

A Public-Key Encrypted Session Key (PKESK) packet holds the session 
key used to encrypt a message.

Notes:

The acronym PKESK is not defined.

Tweaked the suggestion to reword the 1st sentence in 5.1 to define it.
