Dumb, dumb ..... I seem to be sleeping during this reply.  I'm sorry.
Currently, HTTP/1.1 (specifically the virtualhost support of the protocol)
isn't supported by older browsers.  Just check the browser documentation
on its support.  Non resolution of these virtual hosts would send you to
the main server's pages.

I'll comment later when I clear my head.  My apologies.
