When running disconnected, you could set:
to "eternal". This means that cached dynamic revisions should not be 
re-checked at all. You can also do this explicitly using a cache element:

<cache name="remote-cache" useOrigin="false" blah>
   <ttl duration="${remote.ttl.duration}"/>

(use this cache for your svn resolvers)

Now your ant script can somehow arrange to set remote.ttl.duration to 
"eternal" if you are offline, or to 0ms (or similar) if you are online.
