Whatever suits you best. Test and see. I'd just receive the full table
anyway but filter them out, letting only the default routes go into the
RIB. This should streamline your FIB. As I say, you lose outbound load
balancing and your redundancy becomes all-or-nothing, but you save a few

Again, I wouldn't recommend any of this because of the drawbacks, but
along with other recommendations that others have made, like Turbo ACLs,
it may buy you some time.
