If i understand the question the answer is simple. You want to advertise out both isp but only want traffic to go out isp A and not ISP B?

If thats the case you can create you 2 prefix lists or even use the same prefix list for advertisements ie.

router bgp

local-as "myas num"

neighbor remote-as x.x.x.x

neighbor remote-as y.y.y.y

neighbor  prefix-list  my-prefixes out

neighbor prefix-list  my-prefixes out


you can then just  set the localpref on isp b to a lower value

ie route-map LOCALPREF PERMIT 10




Now traffic will only go out isp a unless isp a is down.
