The issue here is that customers (the ones that browse the broken web sites),
don’t know about MTU, ICMP, etc.
So I guess is in your side as the “provider” of the content, who is the
interested party in making sure it works for “all” your possible customers.
Up to now, every time I’ve seen this problem was just related to ICMPv6 being
filtered, as many folks do in IPv4 …
By the way, interesting article, I didn’t read it before:

At $$$job we run quite a bit of dual stack towards customers as an ISP
(mainly PPPoE) - our own public website fails the PTB test and quite honestly
we’ve never fixed it. it works for lots of customer/visitors but breaks for
others (and they fail back to IPv4) - we thought it was only external tunnel
visitors but have found out otherwise… never fully understood what was going on
and I keep meaning to look at it ..
NGINX front ends load balanced via anycast … pretty standard Ubuntu
16.04LTS setup on the server side. From what I’ve read it seems to be an ECMP
related problem like what CloudFlare published a blog about …

ISPs are actually doing MSS re-write and/or announcing lower than 1500 MTU on
the customer LAN, so even if a customer has PPPoE with 1492 MTU, they still
won't see this problem.
