- the aim is that if either the router or server stop working,
everything else (e.g. local DNS, communication between other local
machines) keeps working using the ULA prefix. Example: if the router
stops working, the local workstations need to be able to resolve the
hostname of the server and contact it using the ULA addresses.

For a home network or a small office, what is the best practice
for using ULA in parallel with the prefix from an ISP?
Consider the following:
- router (OpenWRT or Debian) receives prefix delegation from ISP
and shares it, and also a ULA prefix, over the LAN with DHCPv6
- there is a small server or NAS running Debian on the LAN
So, this is all outlined in RFC7084 (replacing RFC6204), and
post-CC OpenWRT/LEDE do a very good job of doing exactly what you
Also, the HOMENET WG has done work to make this work when you have
multiple uplinks, and multiple routers with-in the "home", and do
this in a zerotouch way.
There are many opportunities to contribute to this effort.
