There was an error in the calculation of the value of NB0 in the original transcript. The value of f00 was erroneously set to 0.500 in the code (the value used in Monte Carlo studies), not the world average value of 0.486 as specified in the transcript. The effect of this change is to increase the quoted values of F(1)|Vcb|?EW by 1.4% and the branching fraction by 2.9%. The associated relative systematic uncertainties remain unchanged from the original transcript. Below, we report on the resulting changes in the measurement. The fit results from the Caprini-Lellouch-Neubert (CLN) and Boyd, Grinstein and Lebed (BGL) parameterizations are given in Tables I and II, respectively. (Table Presente..
