Well, you need to make it a refile target, that is the
whole point of defining refiling targets.

If you want, you can make yourself a special refile function that  
temporarily installs a long list of files in org-refile-targets.  You  
can use `let' to bind
org-refile-targets, and directory-files to get the files.

For example (untested)

(defun my-refile-to-reference ()
   (let ((org-refile-targets (list (directory-files "~/Reference/  
'full "*.org")
                                   '(:maxlevel . 1))))
      (call-interactively 'org-refile)))

Would offer all top-level headlines in any org files in the ~/ 
Reference directory
