The volume is independent, but not the ringtone. Maybe the OP forgot to set default ringtone?

Edit: Just realized that my comment is irrelevant. I had been setting alarms through Google Now, so I only received the alarm confirmation. But I see now by setting an alarm in the Clock app, that there is indeed a default alarm tone pre-set ("Melody") even if you don't configure one, and it is independent of the default ringtone in the phone. Sorry for the confusion.
