You could use never_direct, then Squid will ICP ping on all requests,
even those where it would normally not use ICP. Forcing never_direct
when it isn't needed is however far from the ideal situation.

Selecting domains can be done with cache_peer_access or
cache_peer_domain directives.

If you have one parent which you see as preferred, then configure it as
a default parent, and weight it to always win ICP miss queries.

cache_peer your.preferred.parent parent 3128 3130 weight=10 default [and
any other options you see fit]
