What I need to do is replace the contents of each directory of the form
2a or 2b on Server II with the contents of the corresponding 2a
subdirectories on Server I.  The trick is that none of the contents of
the other directories can be replaced... otherwise, I'd just tar up the
contents of DIRECTORY B on Server I and untar it on SERVER II.

If it was just two or three subfolders of the form 2a and 2b on my
server, it wouldn't be an issue.  But I've got hundreds of the little
buggers, and I don't want to spend all day doing this.
You could look into rsync. You ought to be able to construct an rsync exclusion file defining the files to be ignored, though it can get tricky at times.

But really, it may be as simple as the following:

cd /path/to/dir-a
for dir in subdir-2/*/
echo doing $dir
tar cf - $dir | ssh server-ii 'cd /path/to/dir-a && tar xvf -'

then repeat for directory B.
