Default Branch in appveyor.yml

Is it possible to specify the default branch in the appveyor.yml or must it be done from the UI?

We're trying to schedule our dev branch to be built nightly, but the default branch is currently master in github.
The documentation and forum answers are a bit confusing and I can't find a setting.

    Default branch could be set on UI only. Indeed, when you click "New build" button or start a scheduled build AppVeyor should know which branch appveyor.yml should be fetched from.
