Help with synchronizing two directories on remote servers

I apologise for the incongruous posting.

We have two webservers, a and b, both of them with rsync 

We would like to rsync one directory on one server with 
another directory on another server.

What I do is to go to one of the server (server a) as root 
using ssh, navigate to the directory, and write

rsync -avz username at serverb:directory/     ./

This is the error we get

ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection 
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so 
far) [receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) 
at io.c(359)

Thanks in advance
