You do not need it.

I just checked on a server with over a hundred apache virtual domains, none of them have ServerAdmin defined. The ServerAdmin is commented out in the main config file (httpd.conf) and I guess there hasn't been a problem so far.

In fact it seems like apache no longer displays the ServerAdmin in any event?
