In the game of Pitch what are the odds of the jack of trump being dealt in the 24 cards?

This question almost answers itself. If trumps were chosen randomly, then the answer would be approximately 46%, as it says in the title ($24/52 \simeq 0.46$). However, in reality the trump suit is determined by the first player, and therefore the probability is a function of this player's strategy.
