You want to run the daemon all the time and have the rsync clients connect to it.  The client side should be run from cron or a windows scheduler.  The clients pull from the rsyncd (which ever server you have that running on).  Unless you have a specific security/capacity issue that requires you to only run the daemon at certain times, there is no reason not to run it all the time.  Hope this helps clarify.
