You can associate a load balancer to a distrubuted logical router.

If you want to load balance a floating ip/external ip to OVN internal
IPs, then the distributed
router should have a gateway router port so that DNAT on the LB VIP is
done on the
gateway chassis which has claimed the gateway router port.
