Thermal aspects of the Brans-Dicke analog of the Bonnor-type black dihole are commentarially described on the basis of a magnetic-dipole solution of Kim and Lee in the Brans-Dicke-Maxwell theory. It is then exemplified that the so-called area theorem of the horizon is broken and the entropy is divergent, irrespective of the finite area of the horizon.
