RFC 5116, "An Interface and Algorithms for Authenticated Encryption", January 2008

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: sec

Errata ID: 4008
Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Section 2.2 says:

   The
   authenticated decrypt operation will, with high probability, return
   FAIL whenever the inputs N, P, and A were crafted by a nonce-
   respecting adversary that does not know the secret key (assuming that
   the AEAD algorithm is secure).

It should say:

   The
   authenticated decrypt operation will, with high probability, return
   FAIL whenever the inputs N, C, and A were crafted by a nonce-
   respecting adversary that does not know the secret key (assuming that
   the AEAD algorithm is secure).

Notes:

Inputs to the authenticated decrypt operation do not include plaintext P, but instead includes ciphertext C.

Thanks for the correction, since this is descriptive text, it will be marked as editorial.
