I have:
never_direct allow all
Where all are src of all my clients, but sometimes it wrotes (on some
directions) CLOSEST_DIRECT (grrr....)

I used cache_peer_access and it helps - thanks (I use dst-as too!)

Here is small problem i prefer one parent to asXXXX second to asYYYY - I
choose with:

cache_peer_access xxxx allow as-xxx
cache_peer_access xxxx deny !as-xxx
cache_peer_access yyyy allow !as-xxx
cache_peer_access yyyy deny as-xxx

Is that correct (yyy is my last resort cache)?
