Does it have to be to a rollover IRA only?

No. Several years ago there was some incentive to keep rollover 401k money in a separate IRA from your traditional IRA contributions. You could rollover 401k money to a separate IRA, then take that IRA and roll it over into a 401k at a new employer. That restriction has now been lifted, and any IRA money can be rolled over into a 401k plan, as long as the plan allows for it.

You can use any existing traditional (not Roth - yet!) IRA as the destination of a 401k rollover.
