 This sounds like a local configuration problem, Apache does respond to all
 addresses for each domain name used, at least it does for me. 
 
 One guess is that you have the hostname in /etc/hosts and you're receiving
 the /etc/hosts response rather than the DNS response -- and /etc/hosts
 responses only return a single address. 
 
 The next guess is that the DNS name you're using has one address which
 matches the global ServerName, and another address which doesn't. 
 Addresses matching the global ServerName (i.e. overlapping ip addresses) 
 are treated quite differently. 
 
 You should also read the file htdocs/manual/dns-caveats.html since it
 explains why you probably don't want to use DNS names in <VirtualHost>
 statements, especially if reliability is an issue. 
 
 BTW, linux 1.2.30 doesn't exist ... do you mean 2.0.30? 
 
 Dean
