Magnetic diffuse scattering from the Zn-Mg-Ho icosahedral quasicrystal has been observed by single-crystal neutron-scattering for a wide qq-region. The diffuse scattering appears as satellites of intense nuclear Bragg reflections. This suggests that corresponding short-range spin correlations have a modulation vector defined in the six-dimensional reciprocal-lattice space. The modulation vector is proposed as qqm = (3/4, 0, 0, 1/2 , 3/4, 1/2 ).
