Is that number correct?
How would it be for an English / Latin / German
text of the same size?

If a text exactly follows Zipf's law, this
can be predicted. Since Voynichese deviates from
Zipf's law in the same manner as English etc,
one would not expect the above relation (6000 : 8700
if the numbers are correct) to be unusual.
