How does a Virtual Machine get a web serving request?

If a request comes in for a page, which Virtual Machine (assuming there are several on the machine) does the request go to?

How is this handled?

That depends on how you have your virtual network configured in the VM software. Check the documentation for the app of your choosing to see how to setup virtual NICs, ports and whatever else it might need to host a virtual web/FTP/email/whatever server.
