What is the default jira filter sorting order?

When I do a JIRA search or navigate to the results of a saved filter, if I do not specify a sorting order what will the sorting order be? Is it sorted on a field or do they just appear in the order that the JIRA search engine found the matching issues? 

I've seen several posts asking to be able to change the default sorting order. I'm happy just using "ORDER BY" to specify an order, but I'm just wondering what order they are in if I don't.

Default is the descending order of issue key.

Jobin Kuruvilla, Not Always. Sometimes it gets generated in an order other than key, name etc..Appears random at times, could it be order in which JIRA search found it?
