rsyncd treats symlinks differently

I have an administrative server that I use to rsync data between two
hosts. It has root access to our fileserver but does not mount
directories using the same paths as a client machine. In some
directories I have symbolic links that are invalid on the admin server,
but valid on a client (due to automounter magic). When I use command
line rsync, all is well. When I converted to using rsyncd, all my
symbolic links lose their leading slashes.
I am using version 2.4.6 and my rsyncd.conf is as follows:
path = /
read only = false
uid = 0
gid = 1
use chroot = false
list = false
hosts allow = sadmin.bfm.com
transfer logging = true
The command I am using is:
/usr/local/bin/rsync -auv --delete --exclude old
