no, you simply need to provide on the traffic-server
a DNS-resolver which points to the ip-address of the
target and not to the trafficserver again

dnsmasq as example can use a simple hosts file

what i do is fetch with a web-service the whole list
of ServerName / ServerAlias from a target-server
from our infrastrcuture backends and write a hosts
file with any hosted name and origin-ip

this way we simply decide with the "normal" DNS
if a site should be served with trafficserver or
directly the origin depending on page-load
