I think you mean section 4.3.2.

I looked at it, and I couldn't find a way how it could produce two NS
RRsets in the authority section.  But I interpret "If a match would
take us out of the authoritative data, we have a referral." narrowly,
that is, this happens only if the server is not authoritative for the
QNAME under consideration.  A zone cut is not sufficient in my book.
