Huge (uninformed) guess, but apt may be preferring packages from
repositories it can verify the contents of.  Besides, if the versions are
the same, then the contents should be the the same too, and (modulo
bandwidth charges) which one you get from shouldn't matter.  BTW, the new
(twisted-based) apt-proxy rocks hard, if it's your traffic allowances you're
worried about (and who wouldn't be in Australia, given what we get charged).
