We consider a gauge antisymmetric tensor field (which is equivalent to a massless scalar field on-mass-shell). We demonstrate that the total chiral current which accounts for the chirality of the vector ghost fields is not anomalous. We also dwell on the relation between the number of zero modes of the antisymmetric tensor field and the anomaly in the chiral current of the vector field.
