Section 3.4 says:

"PTR" query #2 for "2001:db8:43::

It should say:

"PTR" query #2 for "2001:db8:43::


The second PTR query should be for the reverse of the DNS64 mapped well known address This looks like a cut-and-paste error where 170 was not changed to 171.
After discussion on Behave mailing list it appears that the example is not in contradiction with what the RFC specifies. There was some additional discussion around this for other potential improvements that should be considered in case the specification is revised.
