[Fontconfig] fc-match and fc-match --sort disagree

I am new to fontconfig and don't know how all the innards work. I tried 
to look in the docs, but didn't come up with anything.

When I run fc-match Symbol I get Vera.ttf: "Bitstream Vera Sans" "Roman"
When I run fc-match --sort Symbol | head -1 I get: 
opens___.ttf: "OpenSymbol" "Regular"

I, of course, want the second to be used in the applications.

I have in /etc/fonts/local.conf .
      <family>Standard Symbols L</family>

I would appreciate any help.
