Section 4.1.2. says:

Domain         = sub-domain *("." sub-domain)

It should say:

Domain         = sub-domain *("." sub-domain)[.]

Notes:

RFC-1034 section 3.1 say " Since a complete domain name ends with the root label, this leads to a printed form which ends in a dot." and also say 'a character string which represents a complete domain name (often called "absolute"). For example, "poneria.ISI.EDU." '.
It is necessary to allow a dot at the end of the domain name.
