Data Need help on how to exit a script run on a server from a remote server

I am using the below line to run a script from remote server(say server A) to another server(say server B).

ssh username@servername ksh script name.

The issue is the script logs into server B, executes the script on server B, transfers the file to server A but does not exit from Server B
(note that the keys have been generated and added on both the servers for sftp)

My intention is to exit from the server B once the flat file is transferred to A after exeution on B. Kindly help.
