A DEFAULT user is a user without an special Username entry

Yes, of course, all items in the first line of a entry are check-items,
all following lines are reply items.

Do this in the following way:

special-one Password = mysecret-one
        special-one-reply-item-1 = 1,
        special-one-reply-item-2 = 2,
        special-one-reply-item-3 = 3,
        special-one-reply-item-4 = 4

special-two Password = mysecret-two
        special-two-reply-item-1 = 1,
        special-two-reply-item-2 = 2,
        special-two-reply-item-3 = 3

DEFAULT Auth-Type = System
        default-reply-item-1 =1,
        default-reply-item-2 =2,
        default-reply-item-3 =3,
        default-reply-item-4 =4,
        default-reply-item-5 =5

This means, User with names special-one and special-two
get differently handled as all other users. And because
you have perhaps a lot of other users, you will not list
all usernames and passwords in the users-file, you use
the System passwd files. That's the trick with the DEFAULT
