Maybe using a http-proxy cache hierachy?  Any missing file on a mirror
will be retrieved immediately.  You'll have full control on the sync
rate by tuning the freshness of the indexes.

Using squid or some other proxy as a web frontend will also remove the
load generated by x apache threads, if that is ever a problem...
