I'm pretty sure one can set that permanently by putting something in
one's .Xresources file. The manual suggests a "faceName" resource.
(The X resources are a perfectly good way to specify detailed
preferences, yet GNOME and KDE don't seem to use it, afaik)

Aside, for whoever is unaware of it, this -fa option is using a
different font system than the earlier mentioned -fn option. The -fa
option concerns client-side, TrueType fonts, and the -fn option concerns
traditional, X-server-side fonts. The font names/specifications are also
quite different.
