I don't have enough data to make a detailed guess, but the broad brush 
is that on A, B, the router A talks to, the router B talks to, or a 
router in the path has got an ACL that knows A's IP or MAC address that 
has an unplanned affect.

I'd turn off all ACL's on the path and check again and if clear, turn 
them back on one at a time.  It is not going to be something you 
intended to do.

One other possibility--traffic not routed by most direct, fire-wall-free 
route, but being detoured through a firewall.
