Netscape parent & redundancy

I got these questions:

a. Is it possible to have a netscape proxy as a parent? I don't know much
   about netscape, but it is said to not support ICP-queries.

b. As far as I understand squid asks it's parent whether it's got a certain
   object or whether it should go fetch it itself. When telling squid it sits
   behind a firewall it always uses the parent to get objects, like putting
   the 'slave'-option into /etc/named.boot. I am not behind a firewall, but
   I want squid to be in 'slave-mode'. What happens if I set the firewall-
   options and my parent fails, will squid fall back to get objects directly,
   or will it fail? Is this realisable with the mentioned netscape parent?

Thanks for your answers
