I don't know.  I'd guess to provide redundancy and maybe load balancing
between them.  I don't know if dhcp servers would send all configured
default routers for each request or if they would alternate between the
ones listed for each request.  Regardless, I'd still expect to have to
configure hsrp (or similar) since I'd expect that a device that needed
its gateway(s) specified would have no way to be aware of whether or not
they were available.

Then what is the purpose of being able to have multiple default-routers
under the statement?

I wouldn't expect that.  In order to make something like that to work,
I'd expect to have to set up hsrp or vrrp.

If hosts are getting dhcp info from a router and there are two default
router ip's and the first default router goes down, will the hosts
automatically use the second default router in the default-router
