​AFAIK, 2 different requests are served separately, meaning you can have
some requests sent when some other is being responded to.

If you talk about the same request, then it is only sent to the next
upstream server when there is an 'unsuccessful attempt' at communicating
with the current upstream server. What defines this is told by the

That means that, by nature, there is no response coming back when the
request is tried on the next server.
