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

Source of RFC: ntp (int)

Section 11.2.1 says:

5.  Is d = f and l < u?  If yes, then follow step 5A; else, follow
   step 5B.

It should say:

5.  Is d <= f and l < u?  If yes, then follow step 5A; else, follow
   step 5B.

Notes:

Original text doesn't correspond to sample implementation at A.5.5.1. And, I suppose, described algorithm may throw out reasonable set of measures.
