If you are trying to have a nested hierarchy of basic authorization
realms then that won't work. Basic auth is a single-layer mechanism and
can't be nested. That is a feature of the protocol and not specific to
apache.

If it's something else, post your actual Location snippets so we can see
what you're trying to do.
