If two switch port trunks are bonded, would a default route be configured on the bond or one of the switch ports?

The default route would be on the interface with the IP address. This would be the bond if the bond has an IP or the bridge if the bond is a layer 2 interface within the vlan.

In general, when placing interfaces into a bond, you would no longer configure anything on those interfaces, since their operation is now controlled by the bond. So, the default route would be configured on the bond.
