Apache Redirect WWW

We have two domains pointed to an IP on an Apache Server on a Centos 7 box.

domain1.com  & domain2.com

What setting do we need to set so that if someone types in
www.domain2.com
it doesn't redirect to
domain1.com

Both of these domains are pointed to the same IP. But in Apache they are of course pointed to separate folders.  Currently if you type in www.domain2.com it goes to the website for Domain1.com.

You use 'name based' virtual hosting.  Here is the Apache page on the subject:  http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/name-based.html

Resolution was achived by changing the Virtual Host to listen on Any Address and by editing the ServerName to include the WWW

then created a ServerAlias for the non WWW version of the address.

ServerName www.domain.tld
ServerAlias domain.tld
