Varnish didn't find a cache-hit and I guess you didn't log the
backend transaction here, so I don't know what the backend told us.

It looks a lot like it didn't even get hold of the backend...

Possibly because it couldn't resolve the name of it or because
it didn't have a route to the backend.

It looks like you ran varnislog with a -c argument, try leaving
that out so that the backend transaction also gets logged.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
