The older client may not be able to use some features of a newer server. In the long run, it's probably better to match server and client library versions, but a little bit of skew won't matter.

What you must do is match the client library and the client application in terms of the address size - a 64-bit application needs a 64-bit client library, and a 32-bit application needs a 32-bit client library. Either client library can access either size Firebird server. And, of course, the client doesn't care if the server is Super, Classic, or SuperClassic.
