man pppd
See the: nodefaultroute and replacedefaultroute options.

They should give you control of the trying to set a default

You might check how many /dev/ppp0 devices are trying to
be set up also. ppp usually makes the connection:
ppp? <-> /dev/something

Since routing is on the host, you might have to poke at
the ppp code to get it to take an option for the device
name. I.E: pppdev=ppp0 (vserver 0), pppdev=ppp1 (vserver 1)

It may be that you have to many ppp0 devices visible from
the host (or you would if it wasn't aborting).
