I normally use the sa-learn command to backup and restore the Bayes database between new servers, but I suspect the rsync method works equally well, as long as MailScanner is turned off when you copy it.
These are the two commands that I would normally use:
sa-learn --dbpath /var/spool/MailScanner/SpamAssassin/ --backup > bayes_db-20060320.out
sa-learn --dbpath /var/spool/MailScanner/SpamAssassin/ --restore bayes_db-20050517.out
