Indeed; however, cron jobs operate according to local time.

Well, cron.daily has to run (backup database, process all accepted
packages, rebuild all the monster Packages and Sources files, regenerate
Release files, clean up any files in the archive that aren't referenced
any more, etc.), which isn't a cheap operation. Mirrors get triggered
after that. The official mirrors are arranged in a shallow hierarchy, so
if you aren't updating from a primary mirror then it will take an
additional hour or so.
