High-field neutron diffraction studies of the new quantum-disordered S=1 linear-chain antiferromagnet (NDMAZ) are reported. At T=70 mK, at a critical field T applied along the  direction, a phase transition to a commensurate Néel-like ordered state is observed. The results are discussed in the context of existing theories of quantum phase transitions in Haldane-gap antiferromagnets, and in comparison with previous studies of the related system (NDMAP).
