Wrong, it's served out on both.  I tried it both ways, and got the
following results (see below).  So the fault is something else.  

It makes sense to serve the mirror list securely, providing that the
client actually checks the certificate properly.  It makes it harder for
a man-in-the-middle attack to send you to a rogue mirror with sabotaged
files.
