Neutron diffraction measurements have been performed to study the nature of magnetic ordering in the compounds HoNiBC and ErNiBC. HoNiBC exhibits antiferromagnetic ordering of the Ho moments with a simple commensurate magnetic structure below T-N = 10 K. The magnetic unit cell, doubled along the c-direction with respect to the chemical unit cell, consists of ferromagnetic planes antiferromagnetically coupled along the c-axis. On the other hand, the Er moments in ErNiBC show ferromagnetic ordering with a Curie temperature of 4.5 K. In contrast to the case for the structurally related superconducting counterparts (HoNi2B2C and ErNi2B2C) no modulated magnetic structures were observed for any temperatures above 1.4 K.
