A coordinator at CL.ONE picks which replica(s) to query based in large part
on the dynamic snitch. If your remote data center has a lower badness score
from the perspective of the dynamic snitch, a CL.ONE request might go there.

1.2.11 adds [1] a LOCAL_ONE consistencylevel which does the opposite of
what you are asking, restricting CL.ONE from going cross-DC.

Using CL.QUORUM requires a QUORUM number of responses, it does not care
from which data center those responses come.

Data centers don't really exist in this context [2], so your question is
"can one control how frequently data is replicated between replicas" and
the answer is "no." All replication always goes to every replica.

[2] this is slightly glib/reductive/inaccurate, but accurate enough for the
purposes of this response.
