Section A.2.3 says:

       * maskGenAlgorithm identifies the mask generation function.  It
         shall be an algorithm ID with an OID in the set

         PKCS1MGFAlgorithms (see Appendix A.2.1).  The default mask
         generation function is MGF1 with SHA-1.  For MGF1 (and more

It should say:

       * maskGenAlgorithm identifies the mask generation function.  It
         shall be an algorithm ID with an OID in the set
         PKCS1MGFAlgorithms (see Appendix A.2.1).  The default mask
