>From the TRAMP info file:

  `rsync'  --  `ssh' and `rsync'
       Using the `ssh' command to connect securely to the remote machine
       and the `rsync' command to transfer files is almost identical to
       the `scp' method.

       While `rsync' performs much better than `scp' when transferring
       files that exist on both hosts, this advantage is lost if the file
       exists only on one side of the connection.

That's pretty un-specific.  *Where*, exactly, does the file need to
exist on both machines in order to get this advantage?
