The two servers mentioned transfer the zone from the same place as the *.in-addr-servers.arpa servers. They're a little closer than some of the other servers. I imagine some propagation lag between them would be visible with the right instrumentation. The speed of light is the speed of light.

My personal opinion is that such advice is misguided, but we place no restrictions on the soundness of the reasons for transferring zones from those places :-)
