Abstract: We consider a complex surface $ M$ with anti-self-dual hermitian metric $ h$ and study the holomorphic properties of its twistor space $ Z$. We show that the naturally defined divisor line bundle $ [X]$ is isomorphic to the $ - \frac{1} {2}$ power of the canonical bundle of $ Z$, if and only if there is a Kähler metric of zero scalar curvature in the conformal class of $ h$. This has strong consequences on the geometry of $ M$, which were also found by C. Boyer $ [3]$ using completely different methods. We also prove the existence of a very close relation between holomorphic vector fields on $ M$ and $ Z$ in the case that $ M$ is compact and Kähler.
