serialization of CVS commands?

I am a new CVS user/adminstrator, and a question has come up regarding the
rtag command.

We are currently using this command to label our source tree, then doing a
checkout on the label
to our build machine.  The question has come up as to whether the rtag
command is "serialized" -- IE,
whether a developer can commit a file with a change after the rtag is
issued but before the rtag command completes.
Manangement has suggested that we need to lock everyone out of the
repository before doing the rtag
command in order to avoid this.  Is this necessary?  Can the rtag command be
though of as happening instantaneously?
