If you want to set a particular SMTP server as the default,
wouldn't it be easier to just go to:
Edit -> Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings -> Outgoing Server (SMTP)
click on the server you want set as the default, then click on the
"Set Default" button?
Anyway, which server is set as the default matters only if the
outgoing server (SMTP) in your Mail/News account settings is set
to use the default server. You can set it to use any server
specifically, then it doesn't matter which one is the default.
In other words, setting one of the Outgoing Servers (SMTP) to
be the default doesn't mean it will be used by any particular
