It does, but very fast. If your OS has the IP interface enabled any
instance when Apache is not listening then Squid will quickly give up.

What you can do is to set up the backend server on an virtual IP
interface which is brought up after Apache is started, and brought down
before Apache is shut down. This way Squid will properly retry
connections until the backend server is online again.
