Does this address really violate RFC822?


I'm exploring zmailer 2.2.1 on a Sun running Solaris 2.3.  It seems to be
going well except for one problem.  The following is an extract from
my smtpserver log:

25827w  220 Jester.CC.MsState.Edu Server ESMTP ready at Fri, 25 Mar 1994 11:54:10 -0600
25827#  remote from []
25827r  HELO Charon4.MSstate.edu
25827w  250  Jester.CC.MsState.Edu Hello Charon4.MSstate.edu
25827r  MAIL FROM:<CHAUA@CHS.Clarksdale.K12.MS.US>
25827w  250 Ok
25827w  501-             ^
25827w  501 Path data: Expected an rfc821_string
25827#  aborted: session terminated

but I can't find anything in RFC822 to suggest that this address is invalid.
So, is this a bad boundary condition or is this address really illegal?
