Section 9.4.3 says:

   This syntax defines the content of the various multi-line responses;
   more precisely, it defines the part of the response in the multi-line
   data block after any "dot-stuffing" has been undone.  The numeric
|  portion of each non-terminal name indicates the response code that is
   followed by this data.

It should say:

   This syntax defines the content of the various multi-line responses;
   more precisely, it defines the part of the response in the multi-line
   data block after any "dot-stuffing" has been undone.  The numeric
|  portion of each non-terminal name indicates the response code of the
|  initial-response-line that is followed by this data.

Notes:

The last sentence in the RFC text is misleading; there may be (and in fact, in several cases — cf. Section 9.4.2, there indeed are) response-arguments between the response code and the data specified by the multi-line-response-content production.
