packages.debian.org is an alias for www.debian.org/distrib/packages which is up and works.

The reason why several central Debian systems have been down is that there was a very serious security breach (someone rooted it) and they have been really thorough before bringing the systems up again.

More information:

http://savannah.gnu.org/statement.html (the GNU organization had a similar exploit happen to them)
