Which one is the real server?
   How do you know the client was wrong about where *they* were contacting?

* some clients base connections on details other than DNS A and AAAA
* some services present special IP address contacts only to registered
clients (ie Google DNS). This may be Squid OR the client.

The only case where it turns out to actually be safe is when the DNS
lookup for Squid and client match. You can set client_dst_passthru
directive to 'off' for those cases.
