[NTG-context] cal & calligraphic

I am confused about the behaviour of \cal and calligraphic.
In a font where the calligraphic letters are in MathItalic all goes  
well.
But, in a font where the calligraphic letters come from another font  
I get:

   \definefontsynonym [Calligraphic] [FONT_OTHER_THAN_MathSymbol]

in text: \calligraphic{ABC} is ok
in text: {\cal ABC} is ok
in math: $\calligraphic{ABC}$ is ok
in text: ${\cal ABC}$ IS NOT OK, SYMBOLS KEEP COMING FROM MATHSYMBOL

I would the font redefinition also being obeyed in math {\cal} ?
Why is this the only exception?

yours sincerely,
dr. H. van der Meer
