Thank you for your query.
This could mean impending fetal demise for twin B.
There is no cardiac activity yet visualised in twin B, hence it could be impending abortion of the second twin.
Also, sometimes, it could be delayed conception and twin B could be lagging behind in growth.
A rescan after one week would clarify the picture.
Take adequate antenatal care meanwhile
