No, Apache will still do normal vhost resolution. It's only mod_ssl
that will jump in the way if that occurred without SNI on an SSL
vhost.  The error is logged to the name-based vhost being that you
landed on.

I'm not a big mod_ssl user, but isn't that exactly what's happening
with your 403?

You should be able to confirm in a packet capture or by logging
%{SSL_TLS_SNI}e.    You'd also want to confirm whether your SSL
Session ID is being reused, but after 10 minutes this should not be
the case.  This would be obvious in the handshake (unencrypted) but I
don't know what you'd log or look for in traces with mod_ssl.
