Correct. This is already corrected via an erratum. The RFC editor
keeps errata lists for RFCs; their list for RFC 3501 can be found at
However, that's slightly out of date; the current list can be snagged
Mark: the rfc3502-errata file in that same directory has the same
text for old vs new. 1988 -> 1998?
