For the same potential as originally studied by Ma (Phys. Rev., 71 (1947) 195) we obtain analytic expressions for the Jost functions and the residue of the S-matrix of both i) redundant poles and ii) the poles corresponding to true bound states. This enables us to demonstrate that the Heisenberg condition is valid in spite of the presence of redundant poles and a singular behaviour of the S-matrix for . In addition, we analytically determine the overall contribution of redundant poles to the asymptotic completeness relation, provided that the residue theorem can be applied. The origin of redundant poles and zeros is shown to be related to peculiarities of analytic continuation of a parameter of two linearly independent analytic functions.
