You should be thinking of the concept of "C", but the sound of Bb or A, if that makes sense. The instrument doesn't care what you call the note, the only thing that matters for sound production is the actual pitch which it is speaking at. You don't need to name it at all- you can think about "the sound of (imagine what it sounds like)." ...

My suggestion is that by buzzing at a particular pitch, you will be encouraging the instrument to 'speak' at that pitch when the mouthpiece is connected. Therefore you should buzz at the frequency you want to hear, regardless of the natural pitch of the instrument.
