How does the mirror selection work?

How does determine which mirror it
redirects to?
Reason behind my question is that I just tried to install V14 on a local
debian machine, and 100% of all file-requests were redirected to - which isn't even on the same continent. Our
own mirror ( on the same AS would have been a much saner
choice. Or at least a random mirror in Europe.
This is not because the mirrors don't have the file. Random example:
always redirects both my university-machine and my home-dsl to even though at least and have the file in Europe.
