Only Template file not copied to sub-directories at cvs checkout time

Here is current environment:

On cvs client host:

# uname -a

# cvs -v
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.5-FreeBSD (client/server)

On Server host:

# uname -a

# cvsd -V
cvsd 1.0.0

On client host, I have initiated these commands:

# export CVSROOT=:pserver:user at
# export CVS_RSH=/usr/bin/rsh
# mkdir cvs-test; cd cvs-test
# cvs co project/alpha/section1

When I modify a file at section1 level, and issue cvs commit, the Template 
is perfact in the CVS directory and I see that being called and added the 
following lines at the top of log:

PR# (blank if N/a):
Feature Title (max 30 characters):
Modules Affected (max 30 characters):
Change PR status to fixed?(y/n):
Log Message:

However, if I modify a file in the subdirecotry of section1 (say for example 
subdir1), the Template file is not in the CVS directory anymore at that 

How comes the CVS/Template is only copies at top level but not 
subdirectories levels at the cvs checkout time? Btw, other files in CVS are 
copied at all levels but Template which is only at top-level.
