64bit addressing in Zigbee Mesh Network

I'm having an issue with a small test mesh network.  I've got 2 SRB's (both routers) and an NCB.  SRB1 joins to the NCB, then I turn permitJoinStatus off, and join SRB2 to SRB1.  Now I am able to communicate from SRB2 to NCB (using NWK address), but the NCB cannot respond to SRB2 (using Ieee address).  However, the NCB is able to communicate to SRB1 (using Ieee address).  Is what I'm trying to do possible, or does the Ieee address need to be converted to a NWK address before it can be sent via multi-hop?  I was assuming/hoping this was being done somewhere below the application layer.  Any suggestions?
