You should change it because I (and "it") tell you to. How are you
going to route packets to the internet by default without a route through
your pppd connection?
You change it by not having a default route in the first place, thus
letting pppd do its job. Or do it by hand with /sbin/route.
You change it to what pppd will change it to. The address at the other
end of your ptp connection. Simply
route del default
route add default dev ppp0
or some variant should do the job. Man <various obvious things>.
