Retro branching

I am trying to create a branch retroactively in CVS. The reason is because i did not create a branch at certain point earlier and now am trying to figure if there is a way to create the missed branch.  So what i tried to do is
checkout all the files at with revision numbers corresponding to the missing branch and  
then used "cvs tag -b missing" . I am assuming that this will create the branch and then i make changes to my files and then try to commit it by using "cvs commit -r missing". However when i try to do this CVS is complaining as below:
cvs server: sticky tag 'missing' for file xyz is not a branch.
Any suggestions/insight into what is happenening will be appreciated.
Thank you
