In your case, all requests are served by a <VirtualHost>, so the "main
server" ServerName does absolutely nothing.  But it is difficult for
apache to tell at start time that the main server will never need to
serve a request, so it needs to have a ServerName just in case.
Normally, if you don't specify one, it will try to determine one by
doing reverse lookups on your IP address.  But in your case, it
doesn't get back any "fully qualified" domain names (with at least one
dot), so it assume there is a problem and gives you a warning.  But it
is only a warning message; the server should operate just fine.
