Apache name or ip based virtual servers

I am trying to get apache up and running with about 20 sites. 1st should I set up virtual servers ip based or name? 2nd do I need to be running bind(dns) locally on my server for virtual servers too work. I manage my dns elseware and everything is pointed to the servers ip. I am running Red Hat ES.
Thanks in advance.

If you don't have SSL enabled virtual servers then best approach is to use name-based virtual servers.
You don't have to run DNS server on same server where apache is running.
But you should correctly configure DNS client on that server. (or you can add them to the /etc/hosts file )
