So you're talking about the case where you have ISP1 and ISP2 "plugged into
a switch together with your router"?

In that case I can't see any better way than attempting to match the
link-local IPv6 address that you got the RA from to the link-local address
of the DHCPv6 server you got the PD from.

I can't think of a situation why these would be different, but perhaps
there is. Can the DHCPv6 server be a global address?
