Section 4.4.2 says:
4.4.2 Page 44 Thus, at the RP, KeepaliveTimer(S,G) should be restarted to ( 3 * Register_Suppression_Time + Register_Probe_Time ).
It should say:
4.4.2 Page 44 Thus, at the RP, KeepaliveTimer(S,G) should be restarted to the maximum of ( 3 * Register_Suppression_Time + Register_Probe_Time ) and Keepalive_Period.
The normal keepalive period for the KAT(S,G) defaults to 210 seconds. However, at the RP, the keepalive period must be at least the Register_Suppression_Time, or the RP may time out the (S,G) state before the next Null-Register arrives. Thus, the KAT(S,G) is set to max(Keepalive_Period, RP_Keepalive_Period) when a Register-Stop is sent.
Note that the text above comes from §4.11.
