Always...unless you use special variable .DEFAULT_GOAL that is.  To
quote the info pages:

3.6 Other Special Variables

GNU `make' also supports other special variables.  Unless otherwise
documented here, these values lose their special properties if they are
set by a makefile or on the command line.

     Sets the default goal to be used if no targets were specified on
     the command line (*note Arguments to Specify the Goals: Goals.).
