A is in the form:

May do X unless Y.

B is in the form:

May do X with Z.

If Y is true, X cannot be done according to A, but it can be done with
Z according to B.

If Y is false, then you have one sentence that reads "May do X" and
another that reads "May do X with Z". That's why I said that B applies
an additional restriction on A. Both A and B allow X to be done in
this case, but B requires Z.
