In Deng et al. (Eur. Phys. J. C 70:113, 2010), we have dealt with the production of the two color-singlet S-wave -quarkonium states and through the Z 0 boson decays. As an important sequential work, we make a further discussion on the production of the more complicated P-wave excited -quarkonium states, i.e. and (with J=(1,2,3)). More over, we also calculate the channel with the two color-octet quarkonium states and , whose contributions to the decay width maybe at the same order of magnitude as that of the color-singlet P-wave states according to the naive nonrelativistic quantum chromodynamics scaling rules. The P-wave states shall provide sizable contributions to the B c production, whose decay width is about 20% of the total decay width . After summing up all the mentioned -quarkonium states’ contributions, we obtain KeV, where the errors are caused by the main sources of uncertainty.
