Description (partial)

A router running 3.2.3 acting as an OSPF ABR for an NSSA area, when announcing a default route into the NSSA area sets the LSA forwarding address to one of its interfaces instead of In an instance where there is more than 1 interface from that router into the NSSA area (load balancing), only one interface will be used by NSSA routers to forward traffic towards. If there is no default-route present in the RIB, the forwarding address is set to which will enable load-balancing.

This behaviour occurs when there is a default route present in the RIB of the ABR when advertising the default-route into the NSSA area.
