I expect it to be 10.37.74.24. It can't bind a virtual host to an address
that's not on the server. Here's the output of httpd -S

lccas243$ bin/httpd -S
VirtualHost configuration:
64.157.185.199:80      www.myserver.com
(/usr/local/httpd/conf/vhosts/80_myserver.com:5)
wildcard NameVirtualHosts and _default_ servers:
*:443  is a NameVirtualHost
         default server www.myserver.com
(/usr/local/httpd/conf/vhosts/443_myserver.com:4)
         port 443 namevhost www.myserver.com
(/usr/local/httpd/conf/vhosts/443_myserver.com:4)
*:80                   is a NameVirtualHost

On the server itself, www.myserver.com resolves to 10.37.74.24 which is
the address I have in the /etc/hosts file. But apache is resolving it
based on it's DNS entry. It does this even when I turn DNS off!
