No objection. (I assume that default is valid.)

C-u C-x = should tell you what font and face is being used at point.
face-remapping-alist should confirm default -> vm-summary-mode-default
It seems to be the right face. Have you tried using a different font,

You could start w/o customizations and then customize. That should
Also remember that faces can, unfortunately, be frame-specific, which
really complicates things sometimes.
Generally it should work the way you described it!
