two options in /etc/squid.conf may be useful to you here:

	#  TAG: dns_defnames    on|off
	#   Normally the 'dnsserver' disables the RES_DEFNAMES resolver
	#   option (see res_init(3)).  This prevents caches in a hierarchy
	#   from interpreting single-component hostnames locally.  To allow
	#   dnsserver to handle single-component names, enable this
	#   option.
	#dns_defnames off


	#  TAG: append_domain
	#       Appends local domain name to hostnames without any dots in
	#       them.  append_domain must begin with a period.
	#append_domain .yourdomain.com
