This was covered in another message in this thread, but:
        supersede [ option declaration ] ;

       If for some option the client should always use a locally-
       configured  value  or  values rather than whatever is sup-
       plied by the server, these values can be  defined  in  the
       supersede statement.

host-name is the option you want.
