SIL lists Sogdian, Ossetic, Yaghnobi, Scythian as Northeastern Iranic and Khotanese Saka and Saka (Scytho-Khotanese) as Southeastern Iranic.
It isn't immediately clear the reasons behind the classification.
But!-- we cannot trust wiki. Just about anyone, even nut cases, can write or modify a wikipedia article to suit their own perspective. (And only the Buddha knows what that might be. )
Uh, that's why I mentioned SIL. Discerning readers can still look at Wikipedia and glean good information from it without throwing the whole thing in the trash just because nut cases also write there.
