Question about Server Status Forwarding

We are starting to deploy multiple "collector" servers. What we want
is to have Hobbit Server A collect from it's local group, Server B to
collect from its local group, and Server C to collect for its local
group. (By local group, I mean IP address and physical location
Then we want to have Server A and Server C send the status messages
that they have collected to Server B.
I THOUGHT all that needed to be done was to put in the following:
[snip from hobbitserver.cfg on Server A]
BBDISP="0.0.0.0" # IP of a single hobbit/bbd server
BBDISPLAYS="<Server A IP>,<Server B IP>" # IP of multiple
hobbit/bbd servers. If used, BBDISP must be 0.0.0.0
However, it appears that all the entries that are being forwarded are
coming in as ghosts. Is there something else I need to do on ServerB?
Or on the client side? Should I be using BB-proxy? There isn't any
firewall or proxying between the groups.
