apparently pve-zsync does not seem to replicate zfs zvols (but only 
regular zfs datasets) !?

since zvols is default for VMs, i'm curious if this is a bug or a 
(missing) feature  !?

i tried syncronizing the following way:

pve-zsync sync -dest pve-node2:hddpool/pve-node1-zsync/hddpool -source 
hddpool/vms -v

root at pve-node1# zfs list -r hddpool/vms
NAME                        USED  AVAIL     REFER MOUNTPOINT
hddpool/vms                34.2G  3.42T     30.6K /hddpool/vms
hddpool/vms/vm-100-disk-0  34.2G  3.46T     1.18G  -

root at pve-node2# zfs list -r hddpool/pve-node1-zsync
NAME                                      USED  AVAIL REFER  MOUNTPOINT
hddpool/pve-node1-zsync                   156K  3.44T 32.0K  
hddpool/pve-node1-zsync/hddpool     61.3K  3.44T 30.6K  
hddpool/pve-node1-zsync/hddpool/vms  30.6K  3.44T 30.6K  

the documentation at https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/PVE-zsync  is unclear 
about that.

i'm asking since i want to use builtin utils instead of 3rd party tools 
for that job.
