I think you put a file in the /etc/modprobe.d directory (as long as it's
not the same name as a Debian package) and put this in it:

alias snd-card-0 <default card module>
alias snd-card-1 <other card module>
alias sound-card-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-card-1 snd-card-1

Where <default card module> is the name of the kernel module of the sound
card you want to be default and <other card module> is the other sound card.
