Personally, I would give the parents a card and pick out a small gift just for the sibling, if the relationship and your budget deem that appropriate. Depending on the dynamic, the big brother could possibly use a boost of inclusiveness and it definitely wouldn't hurt!
If that's not possible, I would agree with the pp's and say that if you would normally address the entire family, then yes - DEFINITELY address the brother. We had a new baby recently and my stepdaughter (who we have every other weekend visitation with) is treated as a sister to her - no ifs ands or buts (and certainly no "halves"!). But most people addressed just me and my husband or The M-B Family (we all have one of two names).
