No need to buy VIA ticket through DB Online-Ticket?

I bought one week ago DB Online Ticket from Ruedesheim to Koeln via Koblenz on 10 Sep. First train is VIA from Ruedesheim to Koblenz, and second train is EC from Koblenz to Koeln. Online Ticket shows ticket price is 29Euro as IC/EC Fahrkarte. I am wondering whether I have to buy additional ticket for VIA trains between Ruedesheim to Koblenz or not. Or, no need to buy VIA ticket because VIA ticket price is included to total price of 29Euro I paid?

No need to buy an additional ticket. For the VIAS trains the DB tariff applies apart from trips inside various local public transport associations where the tariff of the respective association applies (e.g. RMV tariff from Frankfurt to Rüdesheim).
