The SR formula for time dilation holds true if SR holds true; it says that for a fixed location, x, T'=T/(sqrt(cc-vv). Because his stationary system clocks are synchronized, the three times in the stationary system clock synchron- ization are valid times at any fixed location, x, in the stationary system, and for any such fixed location, t'=t/sqrt(cc-vv), whether t=tb-ta or t=tb-ta'. This is to say, equal intervals in one inertial system are nec- essarily equal intervals in any other. As shown earlier in this faq, non-simultaneity is an artifact of poor usage. The generalized coordinate form (x-x0), etc, of an equation should be used; if you do so, there is no time difference in t' at different locations of x, etc. Simultaneity is absolute.
