can cloner copy a subdomain site to the network default site?

I would like to set up my production environment with a subdomain for development. Can I accomplish this with cloner? I want to hang an sign on the door of my future production site and then clone a subdomain into it. Can I use cloner to clone a network site say to ? I am wanting to do this with a multisite setup on each domain so I would want to clone it at the site network level.
