I think you copied and pasted the wrong link in the latter part. Both are

To answer your question (even though information is missing), if people link
to a FeedBurner redirection/alias, then it probably depends on the
algorithms. A shallow crawl will credit Feedburner, but a deeper one will
follow and reach your site, thereby increasing your traffic and possibly
giving you credit. Can you not create feeds from your site directly and
publish the URL? I think FeedBurner are mooching a lot of PageRank off
other Web sites...
