Can't say I can repeat this with a Squid-2.1.PATCH2+, and I have tested
it with several earlier versions.

How Squid determines the destination server name when running as a

0. httpd_accel_host has to be set, or the request is rejected.
1. If httpd_accel_uses_host_header on, and a Host: header is available
then it uses the Host: header.
2. If httpd_accel_host is virtual, then it uses the IP address
3. If httpd_accel_host is something else than virtual, then it uses this
as the server name.

Any change to this in squid.conf requires a full restart to be fully
