Yes, change rpc_address to node B.

Immutability aside, if Node A Cassandra and Node B Cassandra are using the
same directory on the same shared filesystem, let's call it
would that not be a problem?  Or said differently, does not Node A need its
own writable place /cassandra/state/database/nodeA and likewise /cassandra
/state/database/nodeB for Node B's writable place?

Multinode Cassandra may not always be available due to resource
constraints.  Presumably multinode Cassandra for Node B is not free: it
takes up network, cpu, and replicated disk space, no?
