rsync over smb share

I have a FreeBSD unix server that I want to backup to a USB drive
attached to a Windows 2000 server. I mount the smb share on the Unix
server and then try to rsync from the source directory to the mounted
directory, but it syncs all files every time. Can someone suggest if
this should work and what my problem may be?
