It's not clarified in the FAQ what unit(s) are hit by a counterattack against a coordinated attack, so I submitted the question to FFG's rules question page. I know some of you have wondered about this, so I thought I'd share the answer:

Only a) as you assumed.
It depends on how they are used whether they are better or not. You lose dice when attacking in that manner. It is also meant to be used with the withdrawal rules so a player could strategically retreat leaving no targets for an entire group.
Thanks for the question!
