permission problem

When I rsync a file named test as shown here:

   # rsync  -e 'ssh -l root'  /web/test

the files is sent OK, but the perms and ownership of the existing target
file are not maintained. The target file takes on the perms and owner of
the source file.

I though that if I do not specify the -o and -p options, then the perm and
owner will be the same as the existing target file.
