Section 6.4.2 says:

           Header        |         OPCODE=RESPONSE, ID=997         |

           Answer        |  VENERA.ISI.EDU  A IN 10.1.0.52         |

                         +-----------------------------------------+

It should say:

                         +-----------------------------------------+
           Header        |      OPCODE=IQUERY, ID=997, QR=1        |

          Question       |QTYPE=A, QCLASS=IN, QNAME=VENERA.ISI.EDU |
                         +-----------------------------------------+
           Answer        |  VENERA.ISI.EDU  A IN 10.1.0.52         |
                         +-----------------------------------------+

         Additional      |                 <empty>                 |
                         +-----------------------------------------+

Notes:

There is an error in the Header line. It should be
"OPCODE=IQUERY, ID=997, QR=1" because the OPCODE does not have a
value of RESPONSE (see Section 4.1.1).

Section 3.2.1 says:

TTL             a 32 bit signed integer that specifies the time interval
                that the resource record may be cached before the source
                of the information should again be consulted.  Zero
                values are interpreted to mean that the RR can only be
                used for the transaction in progress, and should not be
                cached.  For example, SOA records are always distributed
                with a zero TTL to prohibit caching.  Zero values can
                also be used for extremely volatile data.

Notes:

Conflicting descriptions of the type of TTL field.

Section 3.2.1 says "a 32 bit signed integer" while section 4.1.3 says "a 32 bit unsigned integer".

Section 5.1 says:

Because these files are text files several special encodings are
necessary to allow arbitrary data to be loaded. In particular:

                of the root.

@               A free standing @ is used to denote the current origin.

Notes:

"of the root." makes no sense here.

Section 6.2 says:

When a response is so long that truncation is required, the truncation
should start at the end of the response and work forward in the
datagram.  Thus if there is any data for the authority section, the
answer section is guaranteed to be unique.

It should say:

When a response is so long that truncation is required, the truncation
should start at the end of the response and work forward in the
datagram.  Thus if there is any data for the authority section, the
answer section is guaranteed to be complete.

Notes:

It's not clear what it might mean for an answer section to be unique. However, by following the algorithm described of removing RRs from the back to the front, if any RRs remain in the authority (or additional) section, the answer section is guaranteed to be complete.
