resolving difference in interface between rsync and cp/rcp/scp

I've run into a situation where we'd like to replace rcp with rsync, but
we've run into a difference in interface, which is causing us problems.
Here's the problem. If we run this in rsync:
> mkdir tmpdir; cd tmpdir
> mkdir a; touch a/b
> rsync -r a b/
> ls b
But for all the other programs, we get something different:
> cp -r a c/
> ls c
> cp -r a d/
> ls d
> cp -r a e/
> ls e
Is there a flag for rsync that I'm missing that supports this behavior?
I was unable to find one.
