Section 3.1 says:

The RDATA for a SSHFP RR consists of an algorithm number, fingerprint
type and the fingerprint of the public host key.

Section 3.1.1 says:

   This algorithm number octet describes the algorithm of the public
   key.  The following values are assigned:

          Value    Algorithm name
          -----    --------------
          0        reserved
          1        RSA
          2        DSS

   Reserving other types requires IETF consensus [4].

Notes:

The algorithm with value 2 is given as DSS in section 3.1.1, but as DSA in section 5
