As I'm writing a literature review I'm reading another review paper (Paper A) and found a citation to a source (Paper B) that makes a point I want to incorporate in to my own work. I've tracked down that source (Paper B) and agree with the way it was paraphrased in Paper A. How do I ethically and accurately cite this in my own work using APA?

Do I just cite B? Do I cite "A (as cited in B)"? Do I cite both papers?
I guess my main source of confusion is that A was instrumental in me finding out about B, and shaped the way that I think about the point B was making, but didn't technically generate the knowledge that I want to cite.
