Of course, he meant to quote RMA as noting, "Ashkenazim say Sim Shalom," and he later quoted RJJB quoting RMA to that effect.

For the record (and this has likely been noted before in this forum), Minhag FFdM (and I assume this was true in many other communities in the general area) always had the kohanim duchaning during Shacharis of Yuntef (and, I might add, not duchaning during Musaf when it's Shabbos -- as a kid, my assumption was that the reason was a s'yag against violating s'chitah [of the towels used for drying hands]), and Bircas Kohanim is certainly noted in the Roedelheim (and, presumably, other relatively-ancient) machzor(im) for Shacharis. 

All the best from
