I don't see why you want timestamps to be able to differ by 33.5
minutes. Also, the time the two machines keep doesn't matter from the
perspective of rsync-copied files -- as long as you're using the --times
option (which you don't seem to have specified) and each file's time
gets saved correctly to the file system, all should be well.

Which probably means that you don't have your directories lined up the
way you thought. Use --dry-run (-n) and lots of -v options to see what
rsync is doing.
