How to increase scrollback buffer in screen?

I am using screen in terminal and need to increase scrollback buffer (from the original size which is just as large as the current window). I came across this question but the solution seems not to work for macOS.

I made a ~/.screenrc file with the content beeing

startup_message off
defscrollback 5000

The startup message is gone now, but buffersize is still the same. Is screen different in macOS? I am using High Sierra.
