Let's try again. There can be many routes, but only one, 1, count 'em, one, default that 's used when all other selection criteria fails. It's where you send packets that you don't otherwise know how to handle. That's what the word "default" means in this context. The various selection methods may have preferred routes, but there's still only one default route in a router.
