I would say that it's up to the implementation when to challenge. You  
can make an assumption here that
phone B is within a current dialog. B could have authenticated A on  
the first INVITE. Or a proxy between
A and B could have.

A has the right to authenticate B on the re-invite if it wants to,  
since the music on hold music is licensed
from ABBA and only authenticated users are allowed to put anyone on  
hold and listen in... :-)

Normally you separate re-invites from initial invites and say that  
since B knows the tags, the caller ID
and is involved in the call, we'll accept the invite without
