Play the field or play the odds?

Multiple brand new jobs opening at my company. Was planning to apply for all of them, as they're fairly the same.

Is it bad to accept one job while holding out for another?

I am unemployed. I recently applied for 2 jobs. I'm much, much more interested in Job A. I will find out if I got Job B on Monday, while the application process for Job A will drag on until early March. Would it be unacceptable for me to accept Job B, while holding out for the potential of Job A? Job B is a full-time, junior position at popular website with a small, close-knit staff.
