Section 5.2. says:

         User-PI - Server A                User-PI - Server B
         ------------------                ------------------

         C->A : Connect                    C->B : Connect
         C->A : PASV
         A->C : 227 Entering Passive Mode. A1,A2,A3,A4,a1,a2
                                           C->B : PORT A1,A2,A3,A4,a1,a2
                                           B->C : 200 Okay
         C->A : STOR                       C->B : RETR
                   B->A : Connect to HOST-A, PORT-a

It should say:

         User-PI - Server A                User-PI - Server B
         ------------------                ------------------

         C->A : Connect                    C->B : Connect
         C->A : PASV
         A->C : 227 Entering Passive Mode. (A1,A2,A3,A4,a1,a2).
                                           C->B : PORT A1,A2,A3,A4,a1,a2
                                           B->C : 200 Okay
         C->A : STOR                       C->B : RETR
                   B->A : Connect to HOST-A, PORT-a

Notes:

The reply code for 227 in sections 4.2.1 and 4.2.2. shows <host-port> surrounded by parenthesis with a period at the end, whereas the example in section 5.2 does not.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
As Section 4.2 states, only the numeric value of the reply code is significant to the protocol; the text is intended for human readers. The parentheses and period are not significant.
