Jose, you are using an unrelated question as an opportunity to climb
back on your soapbox.  The issue of audio routing in Terminal Services
sessions is fundamentally unrelated to the default audio device issues
you were complaining about.

Terminal services does have the ability to forward a session's audio to
the RDP client for playback on the client machine, but I'm not convinced
that ability is exposed in any way.  RDP audio mapping is disabled by
default on the server.  There are lots of web logs that describe how to
re-enable the audio mapping using the Terminal Services Configuration
tool, tscc.msc:
