AFAIK the only thing that makes master the initial branch is the file .git/HEAD that points to master after you "git init". This is not hardcoded.

Serious errors should not happen since the bare repo on the server is created with the flag denyNonFastForwards. So even if you had a master branch in both repos, only one of them, the first one, would succeed in pushing to the server, a push of the second one would give you an error message. Maybe not user friendly, but safe.
