That doesn't explain why it selects that font instead of some other font
(say Symbola).

Oh, I'm not saying that specifying the font you want sucks.  I'm just
saying that having to specify a good font sucks when what you want to do
is to specify which font is bad instead (and you may not even know
which font is good, and/or that font may not always be the same).
