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...
