Section A.4.1 says:


It should say:



Error in last sentence. See errata ID 2865.

Paul Wouters (AD): From errata ID 2865: The supported_signature_algorithms field is a variable length array. As such ceiling and floor should be specified, and they should be multiple of the base type (which is two bytes long in this case). See section for a valid definition of this field.
This is already fixed in TLS 1.3 RFC8446
