Yes, if you have challenge reuses enabled.

Looks like you are using the old SMB based ntlm_auth helper shipped with
Squid. This helper is fundamentally broken and will always give errors
from time to time. You may be able to limit the amount of errors by
specifying very many login servers, but still there will be problems.

You should be using the Samba-3 ntlm_auth helper. This is proven and
stable technology.

This is the challenge reuse thing mentioned above.
