A nightly scripted rsync backup job is giving me this error

WARNING: vm/escDebLenny14G-flat.vmdk failed verification -- update discarded 
(will try again).

I've searched the web and I think probably the problem is the source file 
changed during the copy.

However, I haven't seen any explanations for the "will try again" part. 

Does it try again immediately?

If so, does a  lack of further errors mean that it succeeded on the retry?
