Begin with two stars in space, A is 1 solar mass in size, B is two solar masses. The distance between them is such that the equation for gravitational attraction works out to 3 meters per second squared. It seems to me that with A being smaller, it will accelerate towards B at the rate of 2 m/sec^2 while B will accelerate towards A at 1 m/sec^squared. Is this correct?
