You can't share variables between different sessions, you have to use the pipeline to pass values back to the caller.
$jobname=$args[0]
$srvBEname=$args[1]
$b=1;
$Result = Invoke-Command -ComputerName  $srvBEname -ScriptBlock { 
	$jobname = $args[0]
		if (!$jobname) { 
			Write-Host "variable is null"
			$b = $b + 1
			$b
		}
} -Args $jobname

Write-Host $Result
