man vncserver :-

       $HOME/.vnc/xstartup A shell script specifying X applications to
              be run when a VNC desktop is started.  If it doesn't
              exist, vncserver will create a new one which runs a
              couple of basic applications.

Specify whatever you want in there (its just a shell script).

Sincerely,

Adrian Phillips
