Well, I will give you my answer: the relation is handle at the AS/400 level.
Go to the menu CFGTCP, take the option 10 "work with host table entries". You 
will see somewhere an entry like:

9.9.9.9   SYSNAME.APPN.SNA.IBM.COM 

This is where the SNA name (SYSNAME) is linked with an IP address.
You should not have to do anything at the router level regarding SNA. But I 
suggest that you try to ping the location you want to reach to make sure that 
the router IP configuration is ok.

Hope this help.
