Terminology: Opposite of dependancies

Let's say you have module A, B, and C

Module C depends on module B and module B depends on module A.

When describing module B, I state that it's dependancy is module A. How do I describe module B's relationship to C? (the opposite of a dependancy)

Thank you for your help!

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on the specific nature of the dependency.  One common way: if C depends on B, B is C's parent.
