Depends on what you consider a default installation. Usually you use only
a fraction of the over 4000 available packages. To see what is installed:
$ dpkg --get-selections

Installing for new stuff is simple:
$ apt-cache search ftpd
atftpd - Advanced TFTP server.
bsd-ftpd - Port of the OpenBSD FTP server
ftpd - FTP server
kwuftpd - wu-ftpd configuration tool
lukemftpd - The enhanced ftp daemon from NetBSD.
muddleftpd - A flexible and efficient FTP daemon
oftpd - A secure anonymous FTP server

# apt-get install ftpd

It is that simple.
