The uncertainty of the theoretical prediction of the B - X,- branching ratio at
NLL level is dominated by the charm mass renormalization scheme ambiguity. In
this paper we calculate those NNLL terms which are related to the renormalization
of m,, in order to get an estimate of the corresponding uncertainty at the NNLL
level. We find that these terms significantly reduce (by typically a factor of two) the
error on BR(B -* Xy) induced by the definition of m,. Taking into account the
experimental accuracy of around 10% and the future prospects of the B factories, we
conclude that a NNLL calculation would increase the sensitivity of the observable
B -* X,- to possible new degrees of freedom beyond the SM significantly.
