How to tell squid to frequently check if parents are still dead?

From time to time squid detects one of his parents as unreachable. The
parent is no longer used and a DEAD PARENT entry is written in the log

Squid doesn't recognize if a parent is reachable again. This results in
a shrinking list of parents. After a time no parent is reachable at all
and the users get a message like "No neighbors or parents ... ".

squid version: 1.0.18
os: solaris 2.4
squid is run as proxy and accelerator for a CERN httpd 3.0
