Your configuration doesn't ask for any mapping for "cfoboard.hcoop.net"
to be added. Why are you using the "domain" configuration directive
instead of "dom"? I think you should come up with the results you want

(It's quite possible that our documentation is out of sync, and
something on our wiki suggested using "domain." If so, it would be
useful for us to know where that is.)

Our secondary DNS server wasn't updating because a daemon had lost AFS
tokens about a month ago, but no one noticed until now. It should be
working again now; I'll leave it up to the admins to figure out a
permanent fix for this problem on outpost.hcoop.net.

You shouldn't expect anything else. All non-SSL virtual hosts share the
same IP address. If your web browser isn't requesting a particular
hostname, then there's no way our web server could know which vhost you
