Perhaps the text is trying to say that in case the parent specifies a
line (e.g. underlining) and child has different font size and its own
declaration for the line (underlining), then there should not be two
different underlinings (one for the parent and one for the child) but
instead UA should decide between the two. I'm not sure which one should
be used.

I agree that the wording should be changed to be more exact.
