Rsync OSX to FreeBSD

I'm using rsync as a backup solution, from:

Mac OS X 10.8 HFS+, rsync 3.0.9
FreeBSD 9.2 ZFS, rsync 3.1.0

Is using FreeBSD and ZFS as backup storage even possible considering ZFS doesn't
understand HFS extended attributes like the resource fork?

If it is, what command line options should I be using?  I currently use "-avXS".

I'm using an older version of rsync on OS X because of issues reported on the
mailing list.

Thank you.
