Veal bone broth substitute for ossobuco

I'm going to make ossobuco but cannot get veal bones for the broth which I'd use for the ossobuco and risotto. Should I make a chicken or beef broth instead?

I've been there. Just use whatever stock that you have.

I would use chicken in that case, unless you happen to have beef only around. The beef stock is likely to be stronger than the veal flavor. The chicken won't be.
