hi everyone and wish you all a great Christmas season.

in a search app, on the 'search results' page
where should be the default focus?
should it be on the "search query text box" or it should be at the beginning of the search results.
i am using H3 to mark beginning of the results and keeping default focus on the search query text box.
is this according to accessibility requirements?
thanks in advance

Warm Regards
