HTTP accelerator mode - fallback options

Is there a way to have squid fallback to various sites in accelerator
mode if a primary server is unavailable?

I've read the docs and the FAQ and they talk about using a single squid
to acclerate multiple sites, but I really only want to accelerate one
site, just with squid being smart enough to try a different machine if
the first one is unavailable or the entity is not found.

ie: you request file.gif. squid tries to get it from, and if server1 is down or returns a 404 squid
immediately then tries
