Copying stderr to stdout

I was having a bit of trouble copying stderr to stdout, e.g.

$ ls 2>&1 lkajsdflkjasdflkj >ll
ls: lkajsdflkjasdflkj: No such file or directory

I would have expected the error message to end up in "ll".

If I place "2>&1" at the end of the line it works.

Is this the intended behaviour?
