This does not mean necessarily mean that something is wrong.
Writes are not occuring at exactly the same time, there is a short
timespan where data is written to disk A but not yet to disk B. So it is
possible that 2 mirrored blocks hold different data.

$ smartctl -t long /dev/sdX

No need for rescue mode.
