Linux Kernel 2.2.5-15

Every 36 hours we get a new IP adress. 
The "NameVirtualHost" is NOT defined with an IP adress because it's a dynamical IP adress
(it's defined as shown below).
We have 3 domain names to be served.

At startup Apache makes a DNS lookup of our domain name and finds the IP adress of the internet
connection (ppp0).
Everything works fine (perfect).
Provider gives us new IP adress.
Our 3 domain names get updated.
Apache only serves virual hosts for old IP adress.
(only a piece of it)

NameVirtualHost p23.dyndns.org

<VirtualHost server>
	ServerName server
	DocumentRoot /home/httpd/html

<VirtualHost p23.dyndns.org>
	ServerName p23.dyndns.org
	DocumentRoot /home/httpd/html/p23/

<VirtualHost youcom.dyndns.org>
	ServerName youcom.dyndns.org
	DocumentRoot /home/httpd/html/youcom/

<VirtualHost kentaur.dyndns.org>
	ServerName kentaur.dyndns.org
	ServerAlias kentaur.myip.org
	DocumentRoot /home/httpd/html/kentaur/
Can the "NameVirtualHost" have an extra setting it looks at a mask of addresses, or maybe
even better a device (/dev/ppp0).
Or can it only be in virtual mode with a default server (= no definition of servername in
main part of file).

NameVirtualHost /dev/ppp0
NameVirtualHost *
OnlyVirtualHosts On
