Section 3.8 says:

TCP/Lower-Level Interface

      Type of Service = Precedence: routine, Delay: normal, Throughput:
      normal, Reliability: normal; or 00000000.

It should say:

TCP/Lower-Level Interface

      Type of Service = Precedence, Delay: normal, Throughput:
      normal, Reliability: normal; or XXX00000.
      where XXX are the three bits determining precedence, e.g. 000
      means routine.

Notes:

The precedence is given by the user.
