Storage Pool for Individual Backups not working right

I have started to use the new feature where you can designate a specific storage pool for each backup job. The backup completed, I was able to backup an offsite server to a disk drive attached to that server inside the same network.

However, there is a problem... From my VMware host I could see that the network traffic for the backup was actually coming through the WAN back to my backup server's network instead of staying within the network local to that offsite server. Essentially, the data for the backup was having to travel through the Wide Area Network twice. Once, coming back to the Vembu Backup Server and then second, traveling back out to the offsite server disk drive.

Am I doing something wrong? Can this be fixed?
