Examine /var/log/secure on machine B. It should shed some light on
things. Also do your ssh with the -v option - you should see which
authentication methods are being attempted. If your key is not being
used, that will be apparent then. If it is being used but rejected, that
will be apparent and the /var/log/secure file on machine B should say
why. I presume you're using an ssh-agent?
