Well... only if points to in DNS. The
point about the default VH in the original example I gave is that it is
not supposed to be the ServerName of a real host. For simplicity, it is
better if the ServerName DOES NOT match a real hostname in DNS.

BTW; I get the uneasy feeling that the original poster does not really
understand how DNS and apache interact. Do you (Milan Reznicek)
understand that it is DNS and not apache that defines the IP address for
all the variant Hostnames of your site?
