You must. You need something like:

acl bigmilky dstdomain .milkyway.hom
acl bigantares dstdomain .antares.hom

always_direct allow bigmilky
always_direct allow bigantares
never_direct allow all

That will cause your squid to go direct to any servers in the milkyway.hom
or antares.hom domains and go via your parent for anything else.
