There actually can be any number of default routes.
What's obviously missing in BNetworkInterface is a way to enumerate the existing routes, though, which you can then use to find the default route(s).

    Is it correct that BNetworkInterfaceAddress::Broadcast() and
    ::Destination() both return the broadcast address ?

It's the destination address for P2P networks - since you can have either or but not both, the same storage location is used.
