We report results from a search for production of a neutral Higgs boson in association with a b quark. We search for Higgs decays to τ pairs with one τ subsequently decaying to a muon and the other to hadrons. The data correspond to 2.7 fb-1 of pp collisions recorded by the D0 detector at √s = 1.96 TeV. The data are found to be consistent with background predictions. The result allows us to exclude a significant region of parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric model.
