See http://www.htdig.org/attrs.html#server_aliases
The server_aliases directive is *not* for virtual hosts!

Also have a look at http://www.htdig.org/attrs.html#allow_virtual_hosts
and make sure that you have the correct setting for allow_virtual_hosts.

If you have access to your server configuration file, the best
thing you can probably do is to permanently redirect one virtual
host to the other. This will also allow other search engines on
the web to function properly. So if you got an Apache server,
simply add the line
        RedirectMatch permanent (.*)$ http://www.edoc.co.za$1
to the configuration for the virtual host edoc.co.za

hth,
