Abstract

It is shown that the complicated form of the line absorption probability function for scattering in subordinate lines, derived by McKenna (1984), is an artifact of adopting a mathematically inconvenient expression for the corresponding redistribution function. It is demonstrated that the absorption probability must be given by the Voigt function.
