Either can be made to work. Just as in the case of BGP, the disadvantage
of peering with the physical address is that if the interface goes down,
so too will the session. So you may want to follow the same rule of thumb
used in BGP- internal peerings with loopback, external with physical
The more important implication is for Peer-RPF, which will care which
address you use. Whatever address is used must satisfy the RPF rules.
Hope this helps,
