I don't believe any traffic originates to the BES server.
The BES server originates traffic to the BES server and all the device transactions are through the provider to RIM.
The BES server contacts RIM servers to update the clients and receive any client generated updates.
That's what RIM support seemed to indicate the process was when I asked them about it. That's why you don't need a public address for your BES server.
