BitchX default server

How do you change permanently the server that BitchX tries to connect to by default? I use debian which has bitchx set to connect to on startup, but my channel is on freenode and recently changed to point to a different network.

AFAIK it connects to first server in ~/.ircservers

But I always start command with a nick/server:

BitchX slackhead
You could also make an alias to do this for each server you need.
