The O(αs) QCD correction to the hadronic decay of a scalar Higgs boson, for which contradicting results have been reported, is calculated. Our result is in agreement with that of Braaten and Leveille but disagrees with that of Janot. The possible origin of the discrepancy is discussed. The total hadronic decay rate and the differential rate to qq̄g of a pseudoscalar Higgs boson are also presented.
