I use the Windoze front-end, not NeXT, but I think Mma's consistent on this.  
See if you have an option under your Styles menu (if that's what it's called 
on the NeXT) for Default Styles Notebook.  This is a notebook consisting of 
style definitions, which is applied by default to every new notebook you 
create.  If you can pull it up, change the offending style(s) and save it 
under the same name.  Henceforward, all new notebooks will inherit the new 
defaults.  There's also a way to apply the defaults to existing notebooks, 
but be warned that it will change *all* styles in the target notebook, not 
just the one(s) you altered, to their default values.
