My reading is that you can go narrower, but not broader, with licensing derivatives using BY and BY-NC material.
So, for example, if you use BY-NC material in your Adaptation, you can release it under All Rights Reserved, or any other non-CC licence that is 'narrower' than BY-NC. But you can't license it under BY or a non-CC licence that doesn't include the BY-NC restrictions (or any other restrictions in the original licence).

As far as I understand it, and I'm not a lawyer, for the BY and BY-NC
licenses there should be nothing stopping you from licensing
derivatives under some non-CC license, as long as you abide by all the
terms of the CC license *and* the new license doesn't contradict or
conflict with anything in the original CC license. What licenses
those may be, I do not know.
