I wanted something similar, and Tassilo Horn helped me with that, see  Here is the relevant
part of my Gnus configuration:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq gnus-thread-sort-functions
      '(gnus-thread-sort-by-number gnus-thread-sort-by-most-recent-date))

(setq gnus-subthread-sort-functions
      '(gnus-thread-sort-by-number gnus-thread-sort-by-date))

(setq gnus-sort-gathered-threads-function 'gnus-thread-sort-by-date)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

For this to work, you have to use the git version of Gnus.
