No.
There is no "The default".
It is much more complicated:

Only if you have set up your printer internally (i.e. via the
printer's built-in menue) to check the paper size and stop and
request the right paper if documents in a non-standard size
are sent to it.
Usually only a PostScript printer (in PostScript mode) can check
the size of a PostScript document which is sent it it.
