Not quite. It should be "Each <VirtualHost> block should contain a
ServerName. If it is absent, the ServerName from the main server
configuration will be used." That should probably go just in the
<VirtualHost> docs, since the name-based docs make is pretty-clear
that a ServerName is needed.

I have indeed stumbled into this myself while debugging someone's
configuration, so I agree it should be documented. I'll try to do it
