The behavior with "../bb" is correct; it's the behavior of "aa" which is
wrong.  The manual says:

     If the makefiles specify a double-colon rule to remake a file with
  commands but no prerequisites, that file will always be remade (*note

This has been fixed in the latest source for GNU make; it works for me:

  $ make aa
  touch aa

  $ make aa
  touch aa
