I've just opened ticket #51709.

Please find attached my patch for check_hostalias(). I tried to stick to
the idea to do the ServerName and ServerAlias check only once for each
server. Also for this reason the result is in the end merely a rewrite
of this function. I hope though that it is clear enough how it is
intended to work.

However, I believe the fix is yet incomplete. The function
ap_matches_request_vhost() used by modules like mod_proxy seems to
implement the virtual host check also in the wrong order. From reading
the comments within that function, apparently someone else wondered
about my issue in the past too:

    /* search all the <VirtualHost> values */
    /* XXX: If this is a NameVirtualHost then we may not be doing the
     *      Right Thing. consider:
     *     NameVirtualHost
     *     <VirtualHost>
     *     ServerName v1
     *     </VirtualHost>
     *     <VirtualHost>
     *     ServerName v2
     *     </VirtualHost>
     * Suppose r->server is v2, and we're asked to match "".
     *  We'll say "yup it's v2", when really it isn't...
     * if a request came in for it would really go to v1.

I'll follow up with a patch for this function later.
