    My address book entries often have multiple phone numbers like landline home, mobile/cell number, office number, multiple cell numbers. Business contacts may contain cell, office, front desk, assistant's numbers. etc.
    When using Siri, "hey siri, call john doe", she would ask which number to dial. That's fine.

    When I do "hey siri, text john doe", she then said "okay what do you want me to say". She doesn't ask which number. I don't know which number she picked, since it is not shown on screen.
    Obviously the recipient won't receive text at the landline number or the office pbx number.

    Is there a default setting where I can specify to use a certain number for text?

    Change your Siri command. Instead of saying "Text mom," say, "Text mom's mobile," or "Call dad's office."
