Rsync always preserve owner/group

I'm in the process of creating an automated update system based on SVN
and rsync. I 'svn update' every night and then rsync the updated files
from the working copy of SVN to the right folders. The problem I have is
that when I rsync the files, the destination owner/group is set with the
owner/group from the source file (the file from the SVN with a wrong
owner/group). I don't want to modify the destination file owner/group
but only update it's content. I'm not using any option with the rsync
command. I also observed that the permissions are not changed in the
transfer, which is a normal behaviour and perfect in my situation.
-rwxrwxrwx 1 psm psm 2754 Mar 17 10:51 wakeup.sh
And the details of the source file:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 2754 Mar 13 11:37 wakeup.sh
Execution of the rsync command:
rsync /root/update/scripts/wakeup.sh /usr/local/etc/scripts/
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root wheel 2754 Mar 17 10:59 wakeup.sh
I also tried to explicitly disable preserve group with --no-g but got
the same result.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks a lot for your help!
