Exclude some source files from being deleted when --remove-source-files is used

I'm using rsync to transfer some files from host A to B and using
--remove-source-files to remove them from A after the transfer. Now however
I have one file 'md5sum' which should be transfered but not removed. I tried
the protect filter rule but this seems not to work in this case. All other
ways I tried don't work either.

Does anyone know how to do this using a single rsync call? I know I could
transfer the md5sum file first in a separate rsync operation and then
exclude it from the second one, but I'm looking for a single-rsync-operation
