    notify.sh: fix incorrect default value assignment.

Thanks for reporting this!

For the archives: if you get bitten by this bug, you can

1. work around by specifying the recipient explicitly in drbd.conf; or
2. grab the fixed script from
http://git.drbd.org/?p=drbd-8.3.git;a=blob_plain;f=scripts/notify.sh; or
3. apply the fix yourself (after all, it's just one character to change).
