In what book (and preferably, page numbers) are the rules for archer volleys in D&D 3.5?

Note that 3.5 also uses the term “volley” to refer to certain classes of attack that involve a character making multiple simultaneous attacks at once, like Manyshot or scorching ray. It’s not really related to the notion of archer volleys (even though Manyshot typically involves archery), but just so you don’t get confused while googling or whatever. – KRyan Dec 3 '13 at 19:20

Complete Warrior introduced the Arrow Volley under Historical Tactics on page 124. Heroes of Battle's Volley of Arrows on pages 68-70 greatly expands these rules.

But because both version requires at least 10 archers, PCs are more likely use the teamwork benefits Indirect Fire and Missile Volley on page 161 of the Player's Handbook 2.

Heroes of Battle, p68 - Volley of Arrows section.
