It indicates that no username is known to Squid. Since your requirement 
is for credentials to be passed to the parent that is correct.

The "Windows" authentication methods (NTLM and Negotiate) are designed 
for end-to-end uses so a proxy in the middle like your Squid cannot 
participate when the auth details are needing to be sent further upstream.
