masking threshold becomes zero when masker and maskee are the same frequency in model 1

According to the spreading function in psychoacoustic model 1, when dz (masker-maskee separation)=0, the spl of the masking threshold is zero, which is obviously not true in real cases.

Is there any reason the spreading function is like this?
