add some acl's like this:

acl proxy1 dstdomain
always_direct deny proxy1
always_direct allow all
never_direct allow proxy1

just to clarify the direct directives means that the proxy itself will
do the query from the original host.
so we must make the squid server to not allow this and the second option
for "direct" is to use a parent proxy.

i'm using it for the same purpose so one proxy will cache dynamic
specific dynamic content with store_url_rewrite and the first will use
redirector using squidgaurd.
