> www.primaryName.com. IN A x.x.x.1
> www.primaryName.com. IN A x.x.x.1

> Each machine is running Apache 2.0.43 in the following manner:

> ServerName www.primaryName.com:80
> 
> A single vHost is configured as follows:
> 
> #NameVirtualHost *
> 
> <VirtualHost x.x.x.4>
>     ErrorLog logs/error_x4.log
> </VirtualHost>
