I don't think you'll have any problem due to running 2.x on one side and 3.x on the other--you just won't enjoy the benefits of 3.x, chiefly incremental recursion, which uses less memory and may be faster then scanning the full file list before making any changes.

You can easily install rsync 3.0.8 on your Mac using macports:
