That's probably because Scribus doesn't use hinting.

Hinting slightly changes character outlines for low resolutions (eg. screen:
in order to avoid such defects. Printers usually have at least 300dpi and
is not really needed there.
To check print appearance on screen you should view at least at 400%.

If you see this defect in a PDF, you probably used Scribus' "subset" option
for Arial,
since otherwise Acrobat Reader would use the original hinting information in
the font.
