When using ROSSerial, how does it handle multiple Xbee devices sending to a single Xbee? Is this performed using Unicast methods? Is there a way to setup ROSSerial devices to send to multiple computers instead of just one?

I don't think you'd have any problem doing this, as long as the single Xbee (the one communicating with the other two) was set as the coordinator. I havent tried it, but the help implies it should work:

This program connects to rosserial xbee nodes. The program must becalled like : ./ <xbee_serial_port> ID1 [ ID2 ID3 ....]

As for unicast, that would be up to your particular Xbee configuration
