varnish in front of load balancer

Second question - we are running varnish in front of a load balander. 
The load balancer has "stickiness" - requests go to the same backend 
server each time, unless that server goes down.  The stickiness is 
provided by a cookie which is set on the first request, and then read to 
direct the request to the right backend.

What I want to do is ignore these cookies when trying to decide whether 
the request can be served from the cache or not - but if it can't be 
served from the cache, then pass the cookies on.

I've seen examples on completely ignoring cookies, but not that cover 
this case.

Thanks in advance,
