rsync'ing from NFS automounted /home directories does

Initially it automounts all the home directories, and
copies the tree. However, when I run the same command
a second time, it deletes all the files for with the
/home directory happened to be unmounted.
Some more details:
Using 'ypmatch -k auto.home', I generate a list of
/home/ directories to backup using ypmatch (see
Because the directories are explicitly included in the
'include list', I would expect them to get
automounted, and picked up by rsync.
I am using 2.5.6 with
$ cat see example.below
The double --verbose options, does not even mention
the /home directories that are not already mounted.
