Sync multiple devices through a server running rsync in daemon mode

Hi, folks!

I have a question about rsync running in daemon mode.

Let's pretend that two mobile devices, X and Y, need to be synchronized by
means of a server, where the rsync is running in daemon mode. If the device
X starts synchronizing a file with the server and after a short while
(before the device X finishes its sync) the device Y also tries to sync
with (the same file), does the rsync daemon prevent the file corruption
keeping the device Y waiting for X finishes its sync?

Best regards,
