It's not just a clue whether it responds or not, it's _what_ it says.
For instance, on my Fedora box (the FreeBSD box is remaking Apache right
now), I get:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Thu, 28 Jul 2005 09:19:48 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.52 (Fedora)
Last-Modified: Wed, 22 Jun 2005 04:20:42 GMT
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
It doesn't really tell a whole lot in and of itself, but even more
informative, if you have the appropriate modules and directives enabled,
would be the output of "GET /server-status HTTP/1.1" and/or "GET
/server-info HTTP/1.1", or the corresponding parsed output from lynx or
whatever. It does help slightly to know if it's a 200 response, or a
403, 404, or whatever, even without server-info/server-status.
Meanwhile, one thing you might try, get rid of the ServerAlias that's
identical to the ServerName. I don't think it should be a problem, but
it certainly can't help; ServerAlias is only for when the virtual host
might be called by names other than the ServerName.
