It should say:

Updates: RFC 952


The text of RFC 1123 clearly states is updating RFC 952, but it is not called out as updating RFC 952.

RFC 1123 section 2.1 states:

"The syntax of a legal Internet host name was specified in RFC-952 [DNS:4]. One aspect of host name syntax is hereby changed: the restriction on the first character is relaxed to allow either a letter or a digit. Host software MUST support this more liberal syntax."
