The RFC says that if you have multiple servers serving a given site
(like the 20 or so servers that serve any given server
can refuse the connection and the client must go on to the other

Problem is, however, that squid doesn't do this properly (there are
patches, but I don't know how stable the RETRY_CONNECT is). If one
of the IP's is down, the site is down.

This is fixed proper with squid-1.2 and various patches are available
for 1.1
