Section 5.5.3. says:

     - If the string-to-key usage octet is zero or 255, then a two-octet
       checksum of the plaintext of the algorithm-specific portion (sum
       of all octets, mod 65536).

It should say:

     - If the string-to-key usage octet is not 254, then a two-octet
       checksum of the plaintext of the algorithm-specific portion (sum
       of all octets, mod 65536).

Notes:

Without the values values of 1 to 253 the following
Note that for all other values, a two-octet checksum is required.
is not just a note.

Changed to editorial.
