Section Appendix B.2 says:

   Externally, data are represented as "network virtual ASCII" (namely,
   7-bit US-ASCII in an 8-bit field), with the high (8th) bit set to
   zero.

It should say:

   Externally, data are represented as "network virtual ASCII" (namely,
   7-bit US-ASCII in an 8-bit field, with the high (8th) bit set to
   zero).

Notes:

This change should make it clear (as in RFC 2234) that the phrase,
"with the high (8th) bit set to zero" is an intrinsic part of the
full definition of "network virtual ASCII", and not the specification
of an exception -- or an additional manipulation for the purpose of
ABNF -- to "network virtual ASCII".
