I'm not sure how rsync behaves when confronted with a network problem
during a session, so I won't give an answer to that.
However, doing individual files sounds reasonable, so make it a loop:
< dbf-list while read filename; do rsync -vz $filename destser:$filename done

I'd recommend doing --inplace, as chances are that data won't move
within a file with oracle data files (so it's not useful to try to find
moved data), and copying the 4TB to temp. files every time could become
a big timewaster. Also the -t option could be handy, not all files
change all the time IIRC.
As always, get the latest version.
