using "--checksum" for local sync

I am using the "--checksum" option, when syncing files over the network.

But when syncing large files locally, does it make sense to use
--checksum, or would it slow things down?

I mean, if it needs to calculate the checksum first, it could just have
synced the file anyway. right?
