Staff checks the GropuA(GroupB) box only.

client 1 checks the Client1 and GroupA boxes.

client 2 checks the Client2 and GroupA boxes.
You may get away with just 3 groups - Staff, Client1 and Client2
if I understand you now. Staff is a member of ALL groups, and
client 1/2 is a member of the appropriate group.
And yes, these group boxes will have to be checked manually unless
you hack Bugzilla code.
