Summary:  In the structure of KMS states of Toeplitz algebras associated to finite graphs, we clarify the role of non-minimal components, i.e., strongly connected components which do not correspond to type III KMS states. For each component $C_0$ and each vertex $v \in C_0$, the KMS state at the critical inverse temperature of $v$ obtained by the limit of type I KMS states associated to $v$ uniquely decomposes into a convex combination of KMS states associated to minimal components. We give a combinatorial characterisation of the condition that the coefficient of the KMS state associated to each minimal component is nonzero.

Keywords: Toeplitz algebra, graph $C^*$-algebra, KMS state, $C^*$-dynamical system
