I would come to the opposite conclusion.

If the aerial cables are likely to be down during an
emergency, there is no point having a battery backup.

I would also hope that the NBNCo decide to install
cables exclusively underground in cyclone/bushfire
prone areas and aerially only in "safe" areas.
Or would that be too much to expect?
