NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (7.47) What happens to cancels if they arrive before the article ?

Q: What happens if a cancel message arrives before the article it is
supposed to cancel?

A: (From Rich $alz)
| If VERIFY_CANCELS is set to DO, then early cancel messages are ignored.
| If it is not set to DO, then early cancel messages cause a history line
| to be written for the article being cancelled. Subsequent offers of the
| real article will be rejected.
