Section 4.2.8 says:

The Absolute-Start-Fractional-Seconds AVP (AVP Code 567) is of type
Unsigned32.  The value specifies the fractional seconds that are
added to Absolute-Start-Time value in order to determine when the
time window starts.  If this AVP is absent from the Time-Of-Day-
Condition AVP, then the fractional seconds are assumed to be zero.

It should say:

The Absolute-Start-Fractional-Seconds AVP (AVP Code 567) is of type
Unsigned32.  The value specifies the fractional seconds that are
added to Absolute-Start-Time value in order to determine when the
time window starts.  The Absolute-Start-Fractional-Seconds represent 
a 32-bit fraction field giving a precision of about 232 picoseconds 
( 1/((2^32)-1)) seconds ).  If this AVP is absent from the Time-Of-Day-
Condition AVP, then the fractional seconds are assumed to be zero.
See the Network Time Protocol [RFC 1305] for more precision.

Notes:

The AVP description lacked a explanation about what a fractional second is.
