This is not accurate.
Since the blast from MSblast, they change the way you
get to windowsupdate with akamai.
>From where YOU are it resolves to 184.108.40.206
>From where I am, it resolves to 220.127.116.11
>From where John Smith is, it resolves to another IP.
This way, the load is distributed.
It's a DNS trickery.
