RFC 6762, "Multicast DNS", February 2013

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: int

Errata ID: 4977

Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Reported By: Nathan Osman
Date Reported: 2017-03-23

Section 6.1 says:

The 'Next Domain Name' field contains the record's own name. When
used with name compression, this means that the 'Next Domain Name'
field always takes exactly two bytes in the message.

It should say:

The 'Next Domain Name' field contains the record's own name.

Notes:

Section 4.1.1 of RFC 4034 states:

"A sender MUST NOT use DNS name compression on the Next Domain Name
field when transmitting an NSEC RR."

In order to comply with the existing RFC, name compression should not
be suggested.
