I dont't know if I exactly understand what u mean.
There is a feature (at least in 1.0pl17) which is called "hierarchy_stop".
I have put a line:

hierarchy_stop ?

into the squid.conf and it prevents it from asking neighbors and parents
and directly connects to the origin site.

However there is a bug in the code. I have reported it and it should be
fixed in pl18 I hope.
The fix is easy. the "for-loop" from the end of the function has to
be moved to the beginning of the function. I currently have no access
to the code an I can't remember the name of the function. However it's
in icp.c. Look out for "hierarchy".
