I think you need to su - <backuppcUserNameHere> and try to ssh -l root as that user so it gets the key for the remote host stored in 
~/.ssh/known_hosts.  Also, I would personally recommend using rsyncd rather 
than rsync over ssh just so you don't have a non-priveliged user of one 
machine becoming root on another, but that's just my advice.  If you choose 
to go the ssh route, this should work!  HTH!
