Section 18.3.8 says:

   After all the addresses have been processed, the server generates a
   Reply message by setting the "msg-type" field to REPLY and copying
   the transaction ID from the Decline message into the "transaction-id"
   field.  The client includes a Status Code option (see Section 21.13)
   with the value Success, a Server Identifier option (see Section 21.3)
   with the server's DUID, and a Client Identifier option (see
   Section 21.2) with the client's DUID

It should say:

   with the server's DUID, and a Client Identifier option (see
   Section 21.2) with the client's DUID

Notes:

The corrected text replaces "client" with "server".

I would like to thank Timothy Winters <tim@qacafe.com> for confirming that this is a bug in the specification.

Throughout the document, when it says:

section 16:
"A server MUST discard any Solicit, Confirm, Rebind, or Information-request messages it receives with a Layer 3 unicast destination address."

section 18.2:
"If the client has a source address of sufficient scope that can be used by the server as a return address and the client has received a Server Unicast option (see Section 21.12) from the server, the client SHOULD unicast any Request, Renew, Release, and Decline messages to the server."


Appendix B does not permit a Server Unicast option in a Reconfigure message.

It should say:

Notes:

Section 18.4 allows transmission of Information-request messages with a unicast destination address, if the client received a message with Server Unicast option. (See also https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/dhcwg/x80cmfTN8fpRViiN_RHNXes-zVg/)
