Names must be resolved via DNS before the request will even be seen by
the Apache server. Apache does not do any name resolution. Adding
virtual hosts does not make names resolve.

Or, as fajita says on the #apache irc channel ...

<fajita> Creating virtual host configurations on your Apache server does
not magically cause DNS entries to be created for those host names. You
*must* have the names in DNS, resolving to your IP address, or nobody
will be able to see your web site.
