How to avoid rsyncing incomplete uploads? (best practice on fileservers?)

some big files are regularily updated on server A.

Rsync should sync that with Server B. 

If rsync starts in the middle of an upload process, will it copy that
incomplete file to Server B? 

First tests showed it will. How can this be avoided?

Comments on rsync-usage with big files and very active users would be
very appreciated!
