Not sure why it would need to because the other server would handle a 
mere fraction of the requests.  In particular, nginx would be handling 
thousands of byte-range requests per file downloaded.  The other server 
would just get 2 requests per file downloaded and in the case of an 
incomplete download, only 1 request.
