RFC 5905, "Network Time Protocol Version 4: Protocol and Algorithms Specification", June 2010

Section 11.2.1 says:

   First, those servers that are unusable according to the rules of the
   protocol are detected and discarded as shown by the accept() routine
   in Appendix A.5.5.3.

It should say:

   First, those servers that are unusable according to the rules of the
   protocol are detected and discarded as shown by the fit() routine
   in Appendix A.5.2.

Notes:

The fit() and accept() routines are identical. Since accept() is not called from, nor mentioned anywhere else, whereas fit() is called from two places and listed in the function prototypes, just drop accept() and use fit() instead in section 11.2.1.
