Bridge honors

A question from the past. A friend of a friend plays rubber bridge and has a question to which I cannot find an authoritative answer online. Does anyone know 'for sure' or could anyone steer me to an authority for answers to the following questions:

A. In rubber bridge, is the claim of honors bonus (trumps version or NoTrump version) contingent on successful result of declarer play of the contract?

B. Is it true that in an unusual case, honors might in fact be claimed by a defender?

C. Are the honors claimed up front or at the end of play, or is this an option to the claimer?

The non-authoritative online answers are 'No', 'Yes', and 'Optional'. Thanks.
