comment Should Varnish Hits Touch PHP?
In addition to the above: Drupal can have many pitfalls which will prevent Varnish from caching pages, and there are settings in settings.php to control much of this behaviour in Drupal 7, for Drupal 6 the easiest path is to use Pressflow instead. (By default in Drupal 6, Varnish would not cache pages as there there is a cookie for even anonymous users.) There are many other ways to optimize a server towards handling Drupal,which can drastically reduce resource usage. (For example memcached, non-default MySQL configuration, and tweaking of PHP, and opcode parameters.)

comment Should Varnish Hits Touch PHP?
Is it possible to get a link to the site in question? If not, are you using any modules which may be making ajax requests back to the server? Ads, statistics etc (A list of enabled modules might help)? What headers are set on the Drupal responses? Are they actually marked as being cacheable? Is the increased memory usage from PHP itself, or is it driven up by the amount of memory varnish uses? Are you using the Drupal varnish module? What are your settings on the "Performance" page?
