[pgpool-general: 5137] Backend connections

I have a following configuration:

3 backends with replication in master-slave mode.

2 pgpools with delegate_IP and watchdog, with weights of backends as

master = 1

both slaves = 0

My understanding is that pgpool shouldnt make requests to backend nodes
with weight of 0.

I have a question: why does pgpool establishes a connections to those nodes?

Also, why does number of connections to backends is much more than
number of connections to frontends?
