Personally, I would suspect the symbolic result as well unless you know from independent means that the results returned by Integrate is indeed the correct result. This I say in regards to another similar situation with: Log[1+1/(e^x Sqrt[x])] which returns an incorrect result symbolically. When I use the Method->Oscillatory I get: In[24]:= NIntegrate[f[x],{x,0,Infinity},Method->Oscillatory,WorkingPrecision\[Rule]20] Out[24]= 0.871
