Have you checked the RFC then?
Go here: http://www.rfc-editorg.org, lots of interesting info.

In short, HTTP 1.1 require that the request contains a Host: header with the
hostname.

Someone or something did a HTTP 1.1 request to your IP, without supplying
the Host-header. It is needed by Apache to deside which configuration to
use, if you're using virtual hosts. This probably is a manual entered query,
that was too lazy to write the Host-header, or perhaps some poorly written
program.
