Section 26.1 says:

    Procedure:  Send a specific number of frames at a specific rate
    through the DUT and then count the frames that are transmitted by the
    DUT. If the count of offered frames is equal to the count of received
    frames, the fewer frames are received than were transmitted, the rate
    of the offered stream is reduced and the test is rerun.

It should say:

       Procedure:
       Send a specific number of frames at a specific rate through the
       DUT and then count the frames that are transmitted by the DUT. If
       the count of offered frames is equal to the count of received
       frames, the rate of the offered stream is raised and the test
       rerun.  If fewer frames are received than were transmitted, the
       rate of the offered stream is reduced and the test is rerun.
