Thus sayeth the manpage:

  The ideas behind rzip were first implemented in 1998 while I was
  working on rsync. That version was too slow to be practical, and was
  replaced by this version in 2003.

So both could be true.  It does use bzip2 internally, but the author
states it *can* be faster if less data is compressed due to it doing
its job right on a long-distance redundant dataset.
