In a real world scenario, I bumped into Verio's RPF peer filters 

Due to the large outage at 200 paul, the /19 that one of my /24's is 
out of went away.  Obviously due to prefix filtering policies, verio 
didn't have my /24.  I had several people complain who were multihomed, 
and did have the /24 from their other carrier(s).  Unfortunately, my 
best path to these customers was via verio, who's rpf promptly blocked 
my return traffic :(

        Speaking about this specific issue,  since there was no return
path in our RIB/FIB, we dropped the packets, yes.  If you were annoucing
the /19 or something that fit our filtering policy (in your
alternate locations) you would not have had issues.
