Thanks to both James Pearson and Per Buer for their suggestions. I implemented the one below and it is working as desired.

Excerpts from Jim Hayter's message of 2013-01-28 13:38:02 -0800:
> I am running Varnish 3.02 under Ubuntu 12.04.
> I am familiar with the ACL example of setting up a list of IPs and testing client.ip against it to limit the ability to purge.
> I have an environment where I would like to check the IP of the originating request against an ACL to decide which backend to use. The problem is that with a CDN and nginx in front of varnish, client.ip does not contain the appropriate IP. The originating IP is available in one of the request headers. Is there a way to convince varnish to compare the originating IP with the ACL?
Here's something I found on the subject:
