In this case, I should use CalculateAllPossibleRoutes() function to make it work. If I use CalculateRoutes(), Interests only follow the single route like using best-route strategy.

Yes. Multicast is similar to "Flooding" strategy.  Given it is pretty dumb strategy, you don't really need to have "CalculateAllPossibleRoutes".  You can simply set "ndnHelper.setDefaultRoute(true);" which will add all available faces to "/" FIB entry, allowing global "flooding".  Though, it may not be what you want.
