I am looking for OSPF clarification, does NBMA OSPF require DR/BDR election? The book I have says it DOES require election, but in the next paragraph it mentions that leased lines NBMA networks like frame relay/ATM ckts do not require DR/BDR election. Do not know which one to believe???

Hello

NBMA OSPF does require DR/BDR election, but in some situations you can configure to avoid it.

Maybe this will help:
