Subnet to Subnet routing

After reading the documents regarding subnets, I still have one outstanding
question with the specifics of BSD/SUN routing from one subnet to another.

Is it possible to use the following numbering scheme and provide complete
inter-communication:

+-------+---------------- Class B Network -----------+--------+
        | |
     +--+--+ +--+--+
     | SUN1| | SUN2|
     +--+--+ +--+--+
        | |
        | +-----+ +-----+ |
        +--+ SUN3| | SUN4+---+ (Class C Network)
        | +-----+ +-----+ |
        | |
        . (Class C Network) .
        . .
        . .

Where SUN1 and SUN2 are on the same Class B network (0 subnet bits)
and SUN3 and SUN4 use the same Class C number, but with 4 bits used for
subnetting.

Will SUN1 route packets, from SUN3 destined to SUN4, to SUN2 when the
destination is the same Class C number except that the subnet bits are
different ?
