RFC 8427, "Representing DNS Messages in JSON", July 2018

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

Section 5.2 says:

"responseMessage": { "ID": 32784, "QR": 1, "AA": 1, "RCODE": 0,
                         "QDCOUNT": 1, "ANCOUNT": 1, "NSCOUNT": 1,

It should say:

"responseMessage": { "ID": 32784, "QR": 1, "AA": 1, "RCODE": 0,
                         "QDCOUNT": 1, "ANCOUNT": 2, "NSCOUNT": 1,

Notes:

ANCOUNT should, IMHO, be 2 and not 1. There are two resource records in the answer section.

True, the RFC explicitely says (section 8, 1st paragraph) that there can be a discrepancy between ANCOUNT and the actual number of records but I doubt this example was meant to illustrate this point.
