If you're using rsync over nfs, it works better if you "pull" rather than "push". There are some attributes which can't be written to an nfs share, but they can be read from an nfs share. So, you simply have an optionally read-only nfs share on the machine being backed up, and the backup machine reads from the nfs share while writing to a local drive.

I'm currently employing Unison which is much like Rsync but has the ability to sync in two directions in one operation.
