Windows 7: W7 update download servers

W7 update download servers

Does Microsoft use non-Microsoft ip addresses for Update *downloads*?

Example: My machine will initiate an update check upon connection to the internet to MS ips like
Both hosts ""

Then connections to hosts from supposedly non-MS servers ips -- checked with or robtex (Level 3 comm) (Akamai) (NTT America) (NTT America)
All ""

The last two ips are in an ip range ( that seemed to deliver eTags and ad content that seemed to span across many sites while surfing -- this is what initially brought this to my attention.

Edit: the GET in the connections to download host is always : HTTP 228 GET /v9/1/windowsupdate/redir/ HTTP/1.1 49191 80

Is this expected behavior?
