Yes, this is what should happen, and it is what actually happens in  
my experience -- I use crossrefs a lot for the described incollection/ 
book scenario (without and with BibDesk), and it has always worked fine.

Can you provide a sample .bib file with one book and one or some  
incollection items which does not work as expected for you?
