[PLUG] some bash help

I have a server that I need to use as a transparent jump box to another network. What I'd like to do is have a "serveradmin" user be able to SSH into "serverA" and automatically be SSH'ed into another server, "serverB". If this second ssh session to serverB is killed (i.e. ctrl+c) or dies for whatever reason I'd like the original ssh session to serverA to collapse too.

How can I do this? Is it even possible? Do I have to do some sort of if while true magic in .bashrc or what? Maybe the first server has to look for exit codes other than "0"?

I've gotten the easy part done already. I can SSH in as serveradmin but while at the login prompt of the second server if I ctrl+c I get dumped back into a bash prompt on the first server. What I'd like to do is prevent this recursion if possible.
