With a little knowhow, you can set up CVS 1.12.12 to do something like
this.  Commits do always go to the central server, however, even though
it looks like they are going to one of the secondary servers from the
client end.  Only the secondary ever actually talks to the primary, not
the client, and reads talk exclusively with the secondary, so if you are
concerned with either firewalls or bandwidth, this may do the trick.

and examples in the proxy-check mode in the src/ file
distributed with CVS.
