This is absolutely the way to do it. All you have to do is add a
ServerAlias, and then WordPress' Canonical URLs feature will
automagically redirect you.

You don't need to do _anything_ else. No .htaccess redirects, no
nothin'. Just the ServerAlias.

If I remember correctly, Spencer uses DreamHost. You can't edit the
Apache config, but you can add domains that "mirror" another domain
exactly, which is basically the same as ServerAlias.
