This break into the two parts: passing errors, such as 5xx, to client
and preventing upstream server from marking as down.

You may want to adjust proxy_next_upstream to reconsider what an
unsuccessful attempt is used to be, to pass 5xx to client.
Besides that, an unsuccessful attempt counts toward max_fails.
max_fails=0 is used to disable such an accounting.
