Is there a default symbol path WinDBG?

Hi all. Decided to read the documentation for WinDBG. This one:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/h...

And found it interesting. If you enter ".sympath srv*", like WinDBG begins to use the default url that will rock the characters. Well, if you believe what you read in the help about the output results of the command:
Expanded Symbol search path is: cache*;SRV*https://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

But I have nothing going on. The Url does not appear.
So two questions:
1. What actually needs doing ".sympath srv*"? (That there it is possible to enter the url and local path where to cache the symbols, I know, I want to understand exactly the meaning of the asterisk).
2. Is it possible somehow to force WinDBG to use the default url (https://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols), so that each time not to recall (immediately after installation).

That is, if there is some short magic of the "srv*", then I would like to know :)
