Spectra of the atomic resonance fluorescence and of the cavity-transmitted light in a driven Jaynes-Cummings system are studied theoretically, where the cavity is driven by a classical field of arbitrary strength. In the regime of strong atom-cavity coupling, anomalous resonance peaks occur at [Formula Presented] with the modified vacuum Rabi frequency [Formula Presented] both in the atomic fluorescence and the cavity transmission. These peaks as well as the observed shift of the vacuum Rabi splitting are explained in terms of the quasienergy levels induced dynamically by the strong driving field. For a stronger driving field, it is shown that the spectrum of the cavity transmission deviates from that of the atomic fluorescence. In the presence of significant damping, the spectrum of the cavity transmission approaches a singlet structure in the strong driving-field limit, and it is found additionally that a bimodal photon-number distribution, which results in a unique quintuplet spectrum of the atomic fluorescence, does not show up in the cavity transmission.
