Streaming from the MBE is unidirectional in the sense that it will
stream *from* the MBE for playback if the file is not available on a
local folder or mount point. But a SBE will not stream *to* the MBE
for recordings. I haven't tried this but I believe that recordings
will just fail on a SBE if the folder defined in the storage group is
not present on the SBE.
