Server A is running Windows Server 2003, and server B is running Windows Server 2008 Standard.

I cannot ping server B from server A, however I can ping server A from server B.

I can also map to server A from B, and from server A to B. However, I cannot RDP into server B from A, but I can from server B to A.

I tried doing a flushdns on both servers but that did not work.

Check your firewall rules on Server B (server 2008). Try disabling windows firewall and ping, rdp, etc.
