Set preferred keyserver during key generation and on existing keysautomatically

using --edit and the command "keyserver" it is possible to set a
keyserver URL which is used by PGP Universal as a hint to create
OpenPGP/MIME messages.

Well, I have to set this flag for about 1000 existing keys... and for
all keys created in the future!
The keys are generated automatically with unattended key generation
(explained in doc/DETAILS).

I know the notation 'preferred-email-encoding' would be the better way.
Using -N and creating new self-sigs is a solution but unfortunately PGP
Universal (at least version 2.03) does not know this flag.

I have found "sig-keyserver-url" which is for data signatures. Is there
a similar flag for cert signatures?

Any idea how to set the preferred keyserver during generation?
