I have got some BIG issues! forgive the long post

... some alleles occur more frequently together than expected by chance. The non-random pairing of alleles in the MHC is called gametic or linkage disequilibrium (LD) and it is influenced by the low recombination rate in the MHC region. The LD could extend over the whole MHC and for instance the ...

Re: Genes in the same linkage group are inherited together?

... barring genetic events such as deletions, insertions, translocations, or inversions. You can get more information by searching for "linkage disequilibrium" and "genetic hitchhiking".
