The 0.6.x release will already do a QuickSync if only the secondary went
down (and the primary stayed up); in that case, only the modified blocks
will be synced.
With 0.7.x, drbd does (after a recommended initial fullsync) always only
sync the changed data, regardless of which side went down. This will
greatly speed up your larger arrays and be faster than rsync, even - as
the system knows which blocks are dirty and doesn't have to go looking
