The term "are serialized" is never defined (18.104.22.168 [thread.once.callonce] p. 2).
[ Resolution proposed by ballot comment: ]
Remove the sentence with "are serialized" from paragraph 2. Add "Calls to call_once on the same once_flag object shall not introduce data races (22.214.171.124)." to paragraph 3.

Change 126.96.36.199 [thread.once.callonce] p.2+3 as indicated:
template<class Callable, class ...Args> void call_once(once_flag& flag, Callable&& func, Args&&... args);
Calls to call_once on the same once_flag object are serialized. If there has been a prior effective call to call_once on the same once_flag object, the call to call_once returns without invoking func. If there has been no prior effective call to call_once on the same once_flag object, INVOKE(decay_copy( std::forward<Callable>(func)), decay_copy(std::forward<Args>(args))...) is executed. The call to call_once is effective if and only if INVOKE(decay_copy( std::forward<Callable>(func)), decay_copy(std::forward<Args>(args))...) returns without throwing an exception. If an exception is thrown it is propagated to the caller.3 Synchronization: The completion of an effective call to call_once on a once_flag object synchronizes with (6.8.2 [intro.multithread]) all subsequent calls to call_once on the same once_flag object.
