Normally this should not happen in a parent/sibling relation, but there is
always race windows where the caches may not be entirely in synch,
especially if there is two requests for the same URL or if you are using

What you can do to eleminate this race window is to use cache_peer_access
to deny the sibling to be used on requests from the same sibling.
