Plot, Epilog, and Text


Re 6.0.1 under WinXP.
 
Why does the first Plot fail but not the second?  

They seem equivalent:  the former simply uses a function to implement the Text command that is explicit in the second Plot.

Thankx.

f=PDF[NormalDistribution[3,Sqrt[6]],x];
g[X_String,w_Real,f_]:=Text[Style[X,12,Bold],{w,f/.{x->w}},{0,-2}];

Clear@x;
Plot[f,{x,-40,40},PlotRange->All,Epilog->{g["X",3,f]}]

Plot[f,{x,-40,40},PlotRange->All,Epilog->{Text[Style["X",12,Bold],{3,f/.{x->3}}]}]
