This could be because Varnish manages to reuse the connection to the
backend so it never needs to choose backend server.
To test this hypothesis: disable keepalive on the backend.
If that is inconvenient or unpractical, set a "Connection: close"
header in vcl_miss/vcl_pass/vcl_pipe.

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