better to exclude at daemon/server or client

Quick question,

Is there a difference if an --exclude-from (or just plain --exclude) is
specified on the daemon or the client?  I'm setting up daemons on each of
my remote servers, and have a host with a RAID connected to it be the
client to pull the data over the network.  I'm wondering if there is a
difference in memory usage, speed, etc. by specifying the excluded files
on one side or the other.
