Section 4., pg.5 says:

[[ second paragraph on page 5: ]]

   DNS SRV RRs, like all DNS RRs, have a time-to-live (TTL), after which
   the SRV record information is no longer valid (see [RFC1034]).  DNS
|  RRs SHOULD be discarded after their TTL, and after the DNS query
   repeated.  This applies to DNS SRV RRs for AFS as it does for any
   other DNS RR.  Any information derived from the DNS SRV RRs, such as
   preference ranks, MUST be discarded when the DNS SRV RR is expired.

It should say:

Notes:

Rationale:
Obviously a late change to the text that distorts the proper sense.
The I-D text was correct.

Perhaps the affected sentence could more explicitly state:

..., and the DNS query be repeated as soon as the information
is needed again.
