Ubuntu – How to know the source ppa of an installed package

aptpackage-managementppa

I have a package (xserver-xorg-video-intel) from ppa sources. Since I have more than one ppa sources for this package in my package management I am not sure which one is the source. So I wonder if I can learn this using apt-get or dbpkg etc. Related question: If I have various ppa's for a given package, will apt-get change the ppa if it finds a new version of the package in any ppa? I am asking since I use an alternative ppa for xserver-xorg-video-intel as the driver in the official one leads to errors in hibernate/sleep.

In addition to those answers running apt-cache madison <package-name> from a terminal may shed more light
