I think it would still be a good idea to file a PR. 

With portsnap the default server is itself one of the servers on the
SRV list, so portsnap should fall-back to a working server even when 
DNS is unavailable (behind a proxy) or screwed-up by a router etc.

I dont see a reason why update.FreeBSD.org shouldn't have the
same A-record as update1.FreeBSD.org, so that it "just works".
