The cross section for the production of Z boson pairs is measured using the
data collected by the L3 detector at LEP in 1999 in e(+)e(-) collisions at
centre-of-mass energies ranging from 192 GeV up to 202 GeV. Events in all
the visible final states are selected, measuring the cross section of this
process. The special case of final states containing b quarks is also inves
tigated. All results are in agreement with the Standard Model predictions.
