Note that "upstream" as logged to error log shows an IP address of
a particular server used, not a host name used in the request.
This is intentional behaviour to make it easy to debug which
backend server caused an error.

To find out what was in fact sent in the Host request header
you'll have to look into debugging log (or use tcpdump to see what
is actually sent though the wire).
