Excerpt from the following text might answer it:

By default, when there are multiple equal-cost paths to the same
destination for the active route, the JUNOS software uses a hash
algorithm to choose one of the next-hop addresses to install into the
forwarding table. Whenever the set of next hops for a destination
changes in any way, the next-hop address is rechosen, also at using the
hash algorithm.

I think I've seen this discussed before, but I googled and can't get the

right keywords.  How does a Juniper J series (or any Juniper for that 
matter) handle multiple default routes (or multiple static routes with 
the same metric)?  Does it do packet by packet?  Or flow-based?  Or
