RFC 7208, "Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in Email, Version 1", April 2014

Source of RFC: spfbis (app)

Errata ID: 6433
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Kaspar Etter
Date Reported: 2021-02-17

Section 3 says:

   Each SPF record is placed in the DNS tree at the owner name it
   pertains to, not in a subdomain under the owner name.  This is
   similar to how SRV records [RFC2782] are done.

It should say:

   Each SPF record is placed in the DNS tree at the owner name it
   pertains to, not in a subdomain under the owner name.  This is
   different from how SRV records [RFC2782] are done.

Notes:

SRV records are placed at specific subdomains, which is not the case for SPF records. (I've chosen Editorial instead of Technical because the meaning of this paragraph should be clear from the context and thus this feels more like a typo.)
