Traditionally that is referred to as "distributed."

A distributed version control system might work very poorly when off the
net, e.g. if it frequently has to go off and contact other people's
repostories in order to provide history information. A centralized
version control system might work very well when off the net, e.g. if
you keep a cached copy of the whole repository. Two very different axes
of functionality.
