1. is there a proxy running somewhere which might be returning bogus
results?
2. put each of those urls into your repo file as the one and sole
baseurl - then you can tell which is which.
3. The mirrorlist cgi does the following:
   - take repomd.xml from the canonical mirror at redhat.com - get
timestamp from inside file of the primary.xml.gz entry
   - downlowd repomd.xml from each of the mirrors and compare this value
   - only mirrors where the value is the same are kept
