Note that I am not officially recommending DNS hijacking, as I think
that it is rather nasty towards your users - and only really works if
all your users use your name servers for DNS resolution.

Having said that: I'd just return your mirrors, if you can handle the load.

There are other mirroring systems which can also act on a BGP or simple
CIDR level, maybe it is time to take a look at those.
