    On my Powermac all audio issued from my external speakers. On my new Mac Pro (2008), all audio issues from the external speakers for all users BUT when no one is logged in, like the boot chime, the audio issues from the system speaker instead of the external speakers.

    Is this the default behavior for the Mac Pro?

    Yep that's normal.

    My guess is that until the boot progresses to the point that the sound drivers load and can redirect to the external speakers, the internal speaker is used.
