I think order is only significant in these cases:

1) the first-listed is the default if no name/alias match
2) if you have duplicate servername/servername or
serveralias/serveralias [untested, presuming consistent results]

I'm not sure about wildcard serverlias in first-listed vhost.  It's
_already_ the default for anything that doesn't match another
serveralias or servername, so you may be covering up subsequent
specific serveraliases with this wildcard serveralias.  Does that
maybe explain the symptom?

I don't think we'll work hard to find a "better" serveralias but I
have never looked at that part of the resolution.  It would be nice to
document that final part.
