I've seen this happen before, a customer does a cut and paste out of some
specification and they really don't know what they pasted into the
document.  And then your management is afraid to insult the customer by
pointing out their error.      Best you can do is correct the problem in
your test plan by interpreting the requirement in some way that actually
makes sense.    But really this is such a grossly mis-written requirement
that you should go back to the author.
