    3836    The header "Retry-After" field can be used with a <x:ref>503 (Service
    3837    Unavailable)</x:ref> response to indicate how long the service is expected to
    3838    be unavailable to the requesting client. This field &MAY; also be used
    3839    with any <x:ref>3xx (Redirection)</x:ref> response to indicate the minimum time the
    3840    user agent is asked to wait before issuing the redirected request.
     3836   Servers send the "Retry-After" header field to indicate how long the user
     3837   agent ought to wait before making a follow-up request. When sent with a
     3838   <x:ref>503 (Service Unavailable)</x:ref> response, Retry-After indicates
     3839   how long the service is expected to be unavailable to the client.
     3840   When sent with any <x:ref>3xx (Redirection)</x:ref> response, Retry-After
     3841   indicates the minimum time that the user agent is asked to wait before
     3842   issuing the redirected request.
