That's correct. I misunderstood the original question and thought it had to do with how the repository was accessed. Letting CVS touch a repository mounted on a network filesystem is a bad idea. Using client-server CVS where the server accesses the repository through a local interface is the recommended method. The diagram by Alan Dayley shows the recommended method.

Where you put your sandbox is a different matter.

For performance reasons (I/O throughput during compiles and network traffic) you might want to put it on a local disk. Policy makers don't always understand performance issues, though.
