Please define "initially" - do you mean:

 - when the squid server is booted up
 - when the squid service is started on an already-running server
 - something else?

What is your DNS setup?  Where is the Squid server pointing for its DNS 
resolver?  Is that DNS server running and answering queries before the Squid 
server/service starts up?
