Hmm, I've got apt.preferences as this now:
maggie:/etc/apt# cat preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 600

Package: *
Pin release a=volatile
Pin-Priority: 600

You can use the output of 'apt-cache policy' to determine suitable lines for pinning:

 510 http://ftp.nl.debian.org sarge/volatile/main Packages
     release o=volatile.debian.net,a=stable,l=debian-volatile,c=main
     origin ftp.nl.debian.org

So try:

 Package: *
 Pin release o=volatile.debian.net,l=debian-volatile
 Pin-Priority: 600
