The entire formulations of BRST and anti-BRST derivatives in presence of Nakanishi-Lautrup field are worked out through with a differential geometric framework. Following the achievements of [33] for strict gauges, it is shown that in general form of gauges within the Faddeev-Popov quantization approach the anti-BRST invariance reflects thoroughly the classical symmetry of Yang-Mills gauge theories with respect to different mechanisms of gauge fixing. The Nakanishi-Lautrup field is also defined and worked out as a geometric object. Topological structure of anti-BRST symmetry as the quantized version of classical gauge fixing invariance is also studied with comparison to that of BRST
