if the other mirrors do not have a ipv6 dns record there is nothing

this problem can also exist in the resolver library of your router
(especially when it also acts as dhcp and/or caching dns server)

Setting the correct ipv4 address of ftp.au.debian.org in /etc/hosts
might help (depending also upon /etc/nsswitch.conf and other glibc
configuration files). Using the OpenDNS servers (or other sane dns
servers) in /etc/resolv.conf instead of a buggy caching dns (if any)
might also help. But only if your resolver library is not buggy.
