I guess you're talking about the dialog titled "Render Alternate File?"
that pops up when you try to render a file that's included in some other
file that you rendered earlier during this session.

Uh... maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but why do you then respond with
"yes" in the first place?

AFAIK there is currently no switch that turns off this feature entirely.
You'll need to pick "No, Don't Ask Again [during this session]" if you
want to render a file that is included by another file you rendered
earlier, once per such file per session.

Note however that if you start the render via the "Edit Settings/Render"
dialog from the "Render" menu, the mechanism will be bypassed entirely,
always rendering the currently selected file with no questions asked. If
you need this frequently, you may want to memorize the corresponding
keyboard shortcut, which happens to be "Alt-R Alt-R Alt-R"
