Typically but bestenigar is one of those rare makams in which it's not and
keep in mind this only happened 2 out of 91 makams for me so far. There's
bound to be at least one more.

In terms of musicality I get it...bestenigar's behavior starts out and uses
so much of makam saba's behavior. It's a quick turn at the end to a finalis
on the pitch IRAK. And the high leading tone of eb will never find its way
into the key signature.

I would just recommend going with what's tradition. I actually find it
difficult to read through bestenigar pieces with the fb in the key
signature and not showing up in the score. It doesn't look familiar to me.
