mirrors in the USA are behind?

I have a reverse proxy between my PIs and the package repositories.
I understand that, without my reverse proxy, a server is chosen based on:

Code: Select all
## Geo-IP based mirror selection and load balancing
Server = http://mirror.archlinuxarm.org/$arch/$repo

My reverse proxy picks one of the 4 USA mirrors: CA, FL, NJ or, IL.

If I point pacman at http://mirror.archlinuxarm.org/$arch/$repo I get more recent packages than when I use the proxy. The outdated servers seem to have caused some problems; the proxy returns 404s. So I bypass the proxy. Instead, should I point to another server than one of the 4 USA mirrors? I am in the USA.
