force range request on proxy server

We used amazon S3 as upstream server. And it does not serve 'Accept-Ranges:
bytes' as respond header. So the nginx proxy server will not serve range
response even if the content has been completely cached on the proxy
We tested on a upstream server that do serve 'Accept-Ranges: bytes' as
respond header. And proxy server was working proper by servering range
Is that the default behavior for nginx proxy. Is there a way to overwrite
