two pve-zsync's to backup the same machine

is it possible to use pve-zsync on two different hosts to backup the same (third) machine?
i.e. like this:
- pve-zsync on host B fetches a backup of VM101 from host A
- pve-zsync on host C also fetches a backup of VM101 from host A

For the record: apparently not only it works with push method, but will pull too. Just use different names for each job (--name option of pve-zsync).
