My understanding:

For the single-active case in the diagram below, when PE4 receives the A-D
per ES route withdraw it won't know whether PE2 or PE3 will become the new
primary/DF for the <ES, VLAN>, so it will start flooding the traffic
destined to MAC1. Then either PE2 or PE3 will become the new primary/DF for
the <ES, VLAN> and advertise the MAC/IP route for MAC1. PE4 will then start
sending the traffic destined to MAC1 to the new primary.

For the all-active case, when PE4 receives the A-D per ES route withdraw it
will update the nexthop list for MAC1 by removing PE1 from that list. PE4
will then load balance the traffic destined to MAC1 by send it to PE2 and
PE3 using alias label.

Regards,
Muthu
