I _believe_ that the weight parameter works on peers as we-- Umm. Good

If squid responds to the first peer to return an ICP_HIT (which is the
fastest peer) as _soon_ as it gets an ICP_HIT, then weight won't work. If it
waits until it gets _all_ ICP responses or neighbor_timeout, then weight
_will_ work.

I honestly can't think offhand which method squid uses.

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
