Sure is. Use the 'default no-query' options in 1.1.x:
# Stuff where everything must go if all else fails
cache_host parent 8080 0 no-query default
# Peering Proxies
cache_host parent 8080 3130
cache_host sibling 8080 3130
cache_host sibling 8080 3130

Or the 'single_parent_bypass' option (turn it on). Squid will go (except
for direct) to the single parent proxy server without ICP querying it.
After all, you're stuffed anyway if it dies.
