\boldmath must be used outside of math

set it correct. See example



%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
% !TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode


%\renewcommand\mathcal[1]{{\LucidaCalligraphy #1}}

Problem 1: Using boldface in math mode.
The problem: I want the math symbol $\symbf{B_{3}}$ to be in boldface in 
math mode with $B$ not
upright. Both B and its subscript 3 should be in boldface.

This is the original in plain math.





Typeface issues.

Problem 2: The emphasis and italic typeface commands produce identical 
Examples follow.

These illustrate the issue with \verb"\emph".

\emph{Emphasis},  \textit{\emph{Emphasis} in italic mode}

\textit{Italic}, \emph{\textit{Italic} in emphasis mode}

$\mathcal{MathCal, MATHCAL}$

$\mathcal{A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M}$

$\mathcal{N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z}$
