Default vs. static routes

Have 2 routers running eBGP and using static routing internally. Instead of using default route of - ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 hssi 2/0 - I want to static route each subnet out hssi 2/0 i.e. - ip route 208.165.197.0/24 hssi 2/0-

- ip route 204.71.93.0/24 hssi 2/0-

and then set my default route to go to my other backbone router i.e.

- ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 205.168.156.1 -

If the line protocol on HSSI 2/0 happens to go down, will the traffic take the default route or will the router keep trying to pump the traffic out an up/down interface??? Does this seem like a good failover scenario for static routing??

Re: Default vs. static routes

if the interface goes down on the router with the static, they will be removed from the routing table, so the router will try the next available route which is the default route.
