flag: improve docs for PrintDefaults; clarify how to change output destination

The existing docs only mention that it is possible to change the output
destination of PrintDefaults from the default of standard error, but fail to
mention how to actually do so. This change fixes this lack by directing users
to CommandLine.SetOutput.

Fixes #15024
