Does this mean the error handler will be called in the case of 4XX, 5XX, and
syntax errors?

If you follow the algorithm a bit further down you have this in step 15.2:

If the load resulted in an error (for example a DNS error, or an HTTP 404
error)
Executing the script block must just consist of firing a simple event named
error at the element. 

Oops, this section isn't step 15.2, it's below it.
