Thanks for the input. Given our network topology, I am trying to avoid
running a full IBGP mesh.
Also forgot to mention, OSPF Area 5 is a NSSA so that I will have control
over what is being advertised.

Assuming that B and C are both in the same AS and speaking iBGP, B
wont re-announce the NLRIs back into itself without being set as a
However, I'd recommend making a full-mesh of BGP sessions over
OSPF-learned loopback addresses. Whether that's hauled over MPLS or
some other L2 transport mechanism, or using routing and multi-hop BGP
is up to you.
That way, C will still learn the routes coming into A, even if the
path is via B to get to the next-hops.
