This letter treats the problem of lossless fixed-to-variable length source coding in moderate deviation regime. We investigate the behavior of the overflow probability of the Bayes code. Our result clarifies that the behavior of the overflow probability of the Bayes code is similar to that of the optimal non-universal code for i.i.d. sources.
