Section 3.1 says:

   ERROR_REPORT:  The ERROR_REPORT event informs an application of "soft
      errors", including the arrival of an ICMP or ICMPv6 error message.
      Section 4.1.4 of the requirements for Internet hosts [RFC1122]
      states that "UDP MUST pass to the application layer all ICMP error
      messages that it receives from the IP layer."  For example, this
      event is required to implement ICMP-based Path MTU Discovery
      [RFC1191] [RFC8201].  UDP applications must perform a CONNECT to
      receive ICMP errors.

It should say:

   ERROR_REPORT:  The ERROR_REPORT event informs an application of "soft
      errors", including the arrival of an ICMP or ICMPv6 error message.
      Section 4.1.3.3 of the requirements for Internet hosts [RFC1122]
      states that "UDP MUST pass to the application layer all ICMP error
      messages that it receives from the IP layer."  For example, this
      event is required to implement ICMP-based Path MTU Discovery
      [RFC1191] [RFC8201].  UDP applications must perform a CONNECT to
      receive ICMP errors.
