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.

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.
