buildout 2 doesn't use config parser.  IIRC, there was never an
intention to support DEFAULT (except perhaps beyond some initial
prototypes).

You could use macros,
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/zc.buildout/1.5.2#extending-sections-macros

  [dev_ini]
  recipe = collective.recipe.template
  call-server = http://localhost:8000/calls/tropo
  input = ${buildout:paster-directory}/dev.ini.in
  output = ${buildout:paster-directory}/dev.ini
  sites-config-directory = ${buildout:directory}/data/sites-config/dev
  mail-directory = ${buildout:var-directory}/mail
  zodb-config-path = ${buildout:paster-directory}/zodb.conf
  database = db
  database-host = localhost
  logs-directory = ${buildout:directory}/logs
  web-server-host = localhost
  web-server-port = 8000

  [staging_ini]
  <= dev
  input = ${buildout:paster-directory}/prod.ini.in
  output = ${buildout:paster-directory}/staging.ini
  web-server-host = staging
  web-server-port = 8020
  database = staging-db
