rsync sudo problem

I have 2 users, User A and User B.
When running 'rsync' using User A, everything works fine.
When running 'sudo rsync' using User A (sudoers permission are wide
open), I get the following error:
pop_dir /opt/somedir : Permission denied
rsync error: errors selecting input/output files, dirs (code 3) at

I think that the pop_dir problem is at the target server, but if sudo
completely changes environment, 
why is this happening ?
