By default simplify() use:
 the default simplify strategy, bg::strategy::simplify::douglas_peucker,
 the default pointsegment strategy, in cartesian
bg::strategy::distance::projected_point,
 the default pointpoint strategy, in cartesian
bg::strategy::distance::pythagoras,
The first strategy is CSagnostic and the two other strategies are
Ndimensional. The projected_point strategy first calculates the
coordinates of a point projected into a segment and then calculates the
distance between this point and the original point using pythagoras
strategy. So a point is removed when a distance between this point and a
segment created between currently analysed endpoints in douglas_peucker
strategy is lesser than max_distance.

Just added:
https://github.com/boostorg/geometry/blob/develop/test/algorithms/simplify.cpp#L197
It calls simplify() with the default strategies:
https://github.com/boostorg/geometry/blob/develop/test/algorithms/test_simplify.hpp#L87
Could you share a test case when the behavior is not correct?
