I admit that it might not be intuitive. but it is documented.

it says:
 disk lower_dev meta_data_dev meta_data_index ...

so you want to say:
./drbdsetup /dev/drbd0 disk /dev/sdb1 internal -1

but actually, you do NOT want to say that.
you just want to edit /etc/drbd.config,
and then use drbdadm, which will call
drbdsetup for you with the correct options.
