[Dev] Mirror a net negative?

if I interpret the data correctly, my mirror received ~22GB by syncing 
with the main mirror, but served only ~7GB in the last 40 days.

$ uptime
  07:35:09 up 40 days, 13:34,  1 user,  load average: 0.02, 0.01, 0.00
$ /sbin/ifconfig venet0 | grep RX\ bytes
           RX bytes:24022006592 (22.3 GiB)  TX bytes:7440433941 (6.9 GiB)

The log files contain >7000 requests with a "pacman" user agent - fellow 
paraboleros use the mirror.

But I wonder if we achieve the goal of saving bandwith to the primary 
mirror when syncing uses more bandwidth than serving data to users.

Is this a problem and should we do anything about it?
