verify with rsync?

I have backuppc installed which copies data from all servers via rsync. Is there any way to verify that rsynced files copied correctly in real time?
Thanks in advance.

I found this on the manual for rsync on the -c flag:
Note that rsync always verifies that each transferred file was correctly reconstructed on the receiving side by checking a whole-file checksum that is generated as the file is transferred, but that automatic after-the-transfer verification has nothing to do with this option’s before the-transfer “Does this file need to be updated?” check.
So then it always verifies, even without that flag?
