No it is not required.

A hostname in a VirtualHost directive is internally converted to an IP
address and only needed if this VirtualHost needs to be bound to a
particular IP on a multi homed host. In most practical scenarios
having *:443 and *:80 in your VirtuaHost direcives is perfectly
adequate.
