Maybe it is, maybe it isn't - I don't think you've given anything like enough 
information for us to know.

It's probably not important to the question (although that's a guess on my 
part), but what's a "VZW FIOS" link?

Also, what do you mean in this context by primary and secondary?

Er, where is squid?  What is your network layout?

What do those numbers mean?

So, you have three squid servers?

I *think* I understand this bit...

'Again'?  And, why do you have to worry about DNS?

Please answer the following questions:

1. How many squid servers do you have (in this setup)?

2. What are their IP addresses?

3. How are they arranged (in some sort of hierarchy or peer arrangement)?

4. Why do you have more than one squid server - what are you trying to achieve 
by this?

5. What problem do you encounter that you're asking for help with?

6. Can you give us any other additional information which might help us to 
understand what you're dealing with and what's going on?

Thanks for taking the time to give us some more information :)


I think broken pencils are pointless.
