Abstract: The paper deals with the problem of extending the recent work of M.S.Baouendi and L.P.Rothschild concerning harmonic functions vanishing to infinite order in the normal direction in balls and half-spaces. Contrary to what one expects, we show that the B.-R. result extends neither to arbitrary domains nor to cases when the normal is replaced by a curve transversal to the boundary. The exact criterion when the result holds in $\mathbf {R}^2$ is given.
