We compute the large-mt contributions to the Zbb vertex in the Standard Model non-perturbatively using both the 1/Nc and the 1/NF expansions. Triviality and its consequences for the perturbative result are systematically analyzed. In particular, we point out that the effect of triviality is already important at the two-loop level for a heavy Higgs (600 GeV < MH < 1 TeV) even when the top mass is below 200 GeV.
