The first vhost is supposed to be the default. The subsequent vhosts are
used if the requested URI reported by the browser matches a ServerName
or ServerAlias directive. If none matches, the first is used.

I think so. Entering that site into the address bar of your browser
should bring up the corresponding vhost.
Try running the 'apachectl -S' command. This will give you information
about your vhosts, and check the syntac of your apache configuration.

You might want to be sure that you know what's being called from the
/etc/httpd/conf.d/ configuration files. I don't know what the default
CentOS files look like, but sometimes there's a 'vhosts.conf' file in
there that might be confusing things.
