How do I get BGP to us an 'internal' route?
What am I missing, do I need to run OSPF, or have another router 
instance on localhost? Both?
RouterA - peers with AS111.
RouterB - peers with AS333.

When RouterA gets traffic for I want it to sent it to RouterB -- but I don't see any 
'weight' on those routes...

RouterA-bgpd# sh ip bgp

I have an peer added route on RouterA to (the GW ip on RouterB).
RouterA-zebra(config)# ip route

Still, that doesn't help, IP goes to AS111.
RouterA-zebra> sh ip route

I have a very simple configuration:

! RouterA
router bgp 999
  neighbor remote-as 111
  neighbor remote-as 999
  neighbor next-hop-self

! RouterB
router bgp 999
  neighbor remote-as 333
  neighbor remote-as 999
  neighbor next-hop-self
