You need to describe exactly how the url framing and "pointing" is
working.  There are many variations on this.

at your server; they point at another server that then sends a frameset
which in turn sources a frame using your IP address.  If this is true,
then it will not work with virtual hosts.

Look at it from apache's perspective.  All apache sees is the request
coming in on the IP address.  There is no way for apache to know that the
original request was from a different hostname.
