Problems with choosing faster parent cache!

I have problem with squid.

The situation is:
I have one cache (cache_for_users) with two parents (cache_fast and cache_slow)

All caches was compiled with the same option (below).

In setup of cache_for_users is:
cache_peer cache_slow parent 3132 3134 proxy-only closest-only no-delay
cache_peer cache_fast parent 8081 3131 proxy-only closest-only no-delay

To the some_host I have much faster connection (more 100 times) with
cache_fast then cache_slow, but squid always select cache_slow for the
connection even when I changed weight for cache_slow to 100. The only way
to select the cache_fast is to comment the cache_slow.

Any ideas?

I have compiled the SQUID 2.2. STABLE 4 with
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-icmp --enable-delay-pools
--enable-cache-digests --enable-ipf-transparent --enable-snmp --enable-htcp
--enable-forw-via-db --enable-err-language=Polish

Best Regards
PS-I must use both caches but i want true load balancing.
PS2-cache_slow and cache_fast are reachable from my cache_for_users in the
same speed (below 2ms)
