Thank you for your reply.I think it is reasonable.
My another question is ,
after peer B has gotten a piece from peer A ,peer B download other piece
from other peer. Does the TCP connection between A and B  be cut down
immediately or remained ?If the TCP connection remain,how long it remain ?

Best regards,
