Which edition of NA are you using? The 27th shows B supporting the
reading without IHSOUN but with the article. A possibility, though:
When I first looked at it, it seemed that they were citing B all over the
place, until I realized that "B." is different from "B" in that the
former is an abbreviation in this passage for BARABBAN, while the latter
is the symbol for Vaticanus.

Hope that helps.
