There are two solutions to your dilemma:

- Route via B

- Add A to 172.16.16.0/24

It's not a matter of dynamic routing, it's just the way subnets work.
If you want all the hosts to be able to talk to each other directly,
put them all on the same subnet.

That you don't want to accept either solution doesn't mean that there
is no solution. "I want to define subnets, but I want hosts on said
subnets to ignore their boundaries" does not make sense.
