[ use cases ] Ouch! My primary actor is also part of the use case ?

Context
I am modeling the communication of two parties, A & B. In one scenario, A performs a request-response like operation on B. Thus the idea is to have some sort of listener thread on B, servicing the requests from A. Within the system boundary of B are also many other use cases, of which some are invoked (read: included) by the listener thread.

Question
My listener thread is acting like an internal actor of B. Is this correct ? Is it a supporting actor ?
Thanks
Pho
