There will be no branch generated automatically. If you have a tagged
version, it is just a tagged version - you cannot commit anything to it,
cvs will refuse any attempt (but: see [1]). In order to be able to
commit to it, you must generate a branch yourself [2], change to this
branch [3], and then, you can commit.

[1] I am assuming here that you do not have a branch tag in mind. In
    this case, you are obviously committing to that branch. I think
    you already know this, don't you?


[3] cvs up -r $BRANCH_TAG_NAME
