Short answer: don't
Longer answer: To solve the exact problems you mention below,
only advertise a aggregate block of your own to this customer,
say x.x.0.0/16, then the customer will configure his device
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.0.0
set routing-options static route 0.0.0.0/0 next-hop x.x.0.0 resolve
This will ensure that if the border router get's isolated, it will no
longer advertise x.x.0.0/16 to the customer, and the customer router can
choose a backup path.
