```I get the same bad result in Version 5.1.1 for both NonlinearFit and FindFit
(error message indicates NonlinearFit is calling FindFit, i.e., both have error
message FindFit::nrlnum)

\$Version

5.1 for Mac OS X (January 27, 2005)

Needs["Statistics`NonlinearFit`"];

points=
{{23400,273.2},{6800,298.2},{2400,323.2}};

NonlinearFit[points,B/Log[R/Ro],R,{B,Ro}]

1556.9062702439037/Log[-0.014815259914646271*R]

B/Log[R/Ro] /. FindFit[points,B/Log[R/Ro],{B,Ro},R]

1556.9062702439037/Log[-0.014815259914646271*R]
