It depends.
(What do you mean by repository here ?)

It's hard to say without knowing how you use your servers :
- the amount of installed packages
- if you install packages from different versions
- if your install basically the same packages to your different servers.

I would recommend that you setup a mirror proxy (can be done with approx,
apt-mirror or even apache) so that you will not waste your bandwidth with packages you don't
need. Only the packages you use will be cached.

A bit, mirrors@debian.org is to discuss only with the people that address the list of Debian mirrors.
debian-mirrors@lists.debian.org or even debian-user@ is certainly better suited
for you, that are open lists with users.
