What is the default compression level for local synchronisation?

Searching the 'net showed that rsync asks zlib to use default
compression which is equivalent to --compress-level=6
but that would not be a good choice for local synchronisation.

Should we use --compress-level=0 for local synchronisation?  We are
using rsync 3.0.9 and 3.1.1.
