Forgive me if this sounds dense, as I've been staring at
fluorine-based rocket propellant reactions all day and not doing
networking, but...

Service provider A provides customized backups service to end user C.
A provides C some dedicated IPs for the backup service to use, as part
of the backup service, organized into a /20.

You seem to have the actual servers at A's location.

Why would C need to or want to advertise the /20 ? -  It's using it to
get from itself to A, across public internet links.  The servers are
not at C's premise...

If I'm just missing something in the scenario, please point it out...
