Ah, okay. In that case I would probably initiate rdiff-backup on B
with cron, and use a script like this (untested!):

On B:

rdiff-backup \
    --print-statistics \
    C::/ /m/C 2>&1 | ssh A 'cat - >> /var/log/rdiff-backup.log'

And in B's crontab:

30 3 * * * lockf -s -t 0 /var/run/rdiff-backup.lock 

The lockf(1) call is to prevent accidental overlap on long running
backups. Perhaps your backups are fast and you don't need that.
