A RR needs to advertise the best path to each RR client, that’s its job.
If it should also send the best-external (which would be, by definition,
not the overall best path) to the clients, you need to use add-path as you
need to advertise more than one path. Have you enabled both? can you share
the config?
IIRC this is the same on XR, you also need to enable add-path on the RR..
