I'd say better :

deb http://localhost:9999/debian squeeze main
AND instead of your volatile entry you'll use:
deb http://localhost:9999/debian squeeze-updates main

1) use the name of the stable release, it will help you not having troubles
2) squeeze and squeeze-updates are what's called a suite, it's after the URL 
in the deb line.
3) you also need the archive area, at least main, but you can add contrib and 
non-free.

Approx just has to know where is the Debian root archive. So no changes, and 
you can use the same entry for lenny and squeeze.
