switch for hardlink behavior on destination

Is there a way to control how rsync handles hardlinks on the destination?

For example: I have two directories on a remote system which each have
the same hardlink called TestFile.txt

I use only one folder as the destination and TestFile.txt needs to be

Can I choose to preserve the hardlink or break it and create a new
TestFile.txt in the destination?
