I researched a bit more. Please check the version from
9fe91c1856d4545a13d0a58946f53e7366b95249 commit.

next home server configuration.

To reproduce start 2 servers home and proxy. Send auth requests, a
proxy server with return reject. In logs, I see this.

(0) ERROR: Failed to find live home server: Cancelling proxy
(0) Clearing existing &reply: attributes
(0) Found Post-Proxy-Type Fail-Authentication

I've returned back to a version from this commit
8fd11ab7168c4aedda8315275a02a34845005f5d  it works for me.

Yes, I understand that when I am using radclient it will not affect
the internal state of freeradius. I just tried to explain that
radclient can access home server, therefore I expected that freeradius
also should be able to reach the home server. But what I saw radius
server didn't try to do that and in the internal state, the home
server was marked as offline.
