invalid default_server parrameter

I have many servers sending ssl which I am trying to terminate. So I wanted
to create a statement that was a catch all instead of listening for each ip
address. I thought this would do it :

server {

      listen 443 ssl  default_server;



but when I run nginx -t, I keep getting the error : nginx: [emerg] the
invalid "default_server" parameter in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:13

Is this the correct way of doing a catch all incoming ssl traffic and what
is wrong with my syntax ?
