Probably yes, but this isn't currently done when you define
ssl servers with

listen ... ssl;

Using "ssl on;" in separate server definition will give you
expected config test error.

Most likely because you used something like "include
/path/to/files/*;" to include individual config files, and new
server you added was picked up first and become default one.
