There are two types of channels allowed by this protocol.  One is a
distributed channel, which is known to all the servers that are
connected to the network. These channels are marked by the first
character being a '#'.  The other type of channel is limited to one
server, and only clients on the server where it exists may join
it.  These channels are distinguished by a leading '&' character.

Section 6.2 says:

To reply to a NAMES message, a reply pair consisting
of RPL_NAMREPLY and RPL_ENDOFNAMES is sent by the
server back to the client.  If there is no channel
found as in the query, then only RPL_ENDOFNAMES is
returned.  The exception to this is when a NAMES
message is sent with no parameters and all visible
channels and contents are sent back in a series of
RPL_NAMEREPLY messages with a RPL_ENDOFNAMES to mark
the end.

It should say:

Notes:

RPL_NAMEREPLY does not exist anywhere else in the document, while RPL_NAMREPLY is used 4 times. This is likely a typo.
