Section A.3.3 says:

     cc       :  Important folk:
                   Tom Softwood <Balsa@Tree.Root>,
                   "Sam Irving"@Other-Host;,
                 Standard Distribution:
                   /main/davis/people/standard@Other-Host,
                   "<Jones>standard.dist.3"@Tops-20-Host>;

It should say:

     cc       :  Important folk:
                   Tom Softwood <Balsa@Tree.Root>,
                   "Sam Irving"@Other-Host;,
                 Standard Distribution:
                   /main/davis/people/standard@Other-Host,
                   "<Jones>standard.dist.3"@Tops-20-Host;

or

                   <"Jones>standard.dist.3"@Tops-20-Host>;

or

                   <"<Jones>standard.dist.3"@Tops-20-Host>;

Notes:

According to 3.4.6 of the RFC, brackets must occur in matched pairs. There is not matching "<" for the closing ">" after "Tops-20-Host".

----- Verifier Notes -----
RFC 822 has long been obsolete, first by RFC 2822 and then by RFC 5322, and I hope everyone is using 5322 by now. The examples were completely re-done in 2822, and this issue is long gone.
