rsync to mirror

I'm trying to setup an rsync to mirror a directory on server A to server B.
I run this rsync commnad on the receiving end server B and it copies the directory and its contents fine from server A but it doesn't actually mirror.
When a file is deleted on server A, it doesn't get deleted on server B.
It just addes any new files or changes.
How would I go about having it to delete any files that does not exist on server A on server B?

rsync -avrze ssh --delete user@A:/home/jsmith /home/
