Camel just set the CorrelationId and ReplyTo header for reply message,
I don't if the NMS translate the ReplyTo to NMSReplyTo and you may need 
to access the ReplyTo header in your .net code to verify it.

As your .net code is out of control of Camel, I'm afraid you have to do 
the job (send the response message back) yourself.
