I get a slightly different answer -

> nslookup                                                                                                           [96%]

Non-authoritative answer:	name = security.debian.org.

Authoritative answers can be found from:

But whois gives the correct thing that it indeed is a mirror in japan -

> whois

[ JPNIC database provides information regarding IP address and ASN. Its use   ]
[ is restricted to network administration purposes. For further information,  ]
[ use 'whois -h whois.nic.ad.jp help'. To only display English output,        ]
[ add '/e' at the end of command, e.g. 'whois -h whois.nic.ad.jp xxx/e'.      ]

Less Specific Info.
SAKURA Internet Inc.

More Specific Info.
No match!!

I do agree with OP that security updates are sometimes late or
sometimes have to update twice or thrice to get security updates.
Dunno though, how and if this can be improved ?
