You can do this with two passes; I don't know of a way to do it with a
single pass.  Note that deletions from DIR-B, if any, are not
represented in DIR-C.

rsync <options> --compare-dest=../DIR-B/ DIR-A/ DIR-C/
rsync <options> DIR-A/ DIR-B/

(If you adapt these commands, remember that rsync interprets relative
--*-dest paths starting from the destination directory.)
