Change font in metadata

I have looked and looked and can't find anything relating to changing the font in the metadata that's placed at the beginning of the book. What I have now is a san serif very large. It doesn't look good. I've looked through preferences and don't see this either. Thanks for any help.

If you open the EPUB in the editor, in the JACKET you will see a note:
"Kindle ignores this type of formatting

I don't think I understand that. It's saying that you can't format the metadata because Kindle ignores it? I'm sorry. I'm a dunce.

That is how I read it.
I set my K4 to (mostly ) use 'Publishers' CSS ( I also use AZW3 since I always transfer by USB)

I think I found the answer. Change the CSS stylesheet under cbjcomments from font: san serif to font: [font name] serif.
