Nice question on the fundamentals ..

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Nice question.

Has one small problem though: the code leaves a transaction open - nothing is actually committed.
It's clearly stated in BOL:-
Although each COMMIT TRANSACTION statement has a transaction_name parameter, there is no relationship between the COMMIT TRANSACTION and BEGIN TRANSACTION statements. The transaction_name parameters are simply readability aids to help the programmer ensure that the proper number of commits are coded to decrement @@TRANCOUNT to 0 and thereby commit the outer transaction.

Thus the COMMIT TRAN A stement simply decrements the trancount to close the innermost the innermost open transaction since there are still two transactions open when it is encountered: the transaction named A and the transaction named B, since ROLLBACK TRAN B rolled back to the savepoint labelled B, and that savepoint includes some work done in teh transaction named B. The transaction named A, which is the outermost transaction, remains uncommitted.

Will dropping the table remove the open transaction on the table?
