if A, B and C are on different nodes one can assume very different
transmission delays in such a manner that c-second will indeed arrive
if they are on the same node i can imagine that the message passing is
preemtible in such a way that a-second will not be delivered untila
after c-second. not that such a message passing system would be a good
idea, but it is possible.
