You can have two default routes. In one case you have different metrics, then
only the one with the smaller metric is used. This is good for situations
where the better route may get dropped (link down).

Yu can have also 2 default routes to the same destination, it is called equal
cost multi route and a kernel option, used for load balancing.

any other configurations are great problem.

It is related to the route cache, why it did worked.

route -C
