Thanks.  It's quite simple, actually.  What I want to do is direct all 
domains that fall under a virtualhost which has many server aliases to 
one canonical domain.

So, for example, if my canonical name is, and someone 
accesses or (all of which are aliases in 
VirtualHost block), I want a redirect to be issued pointing to the 
canonical ServerName value (  Since this is already 
stored in %{SERVER_NAME}, I thought it would be best to use it, because 
I have this kind of behavior on many, but not all, VirtualHosts.  It 
would save me a lot of time.
