The demand pooling anomaly of inventory theory of type F amounts to a kind of restricted order relation between the individual demands (assumed to be independent) and their average. In this paper, we present some sufficient conditions for the type F anomaly not to occur for two i.i.d. demands; furthermore we provide an asymptotic result showing whether this anomaly occurs for large n for a class of distributions containing all distributions with finite mean.
