all you know is that B is called by A.

you say that both programs varibles are in linkage section.

does that mean A has a procedure division using statement?

A could very well also be a subprogram.

If A is calling B then A is the driver and be is subordinate to it in this case. But, A could be subordinate to some other program, we can't say without more details, but it probably doesn't matter in this case.
