Rsync will only create one level of missing directory hierarchy on the
destination.  Beyond that, it assumes that you made a mistake in
specifying the destination.  You can kluge around the limitation by
creating an empty directory and rsyncing it into place on the
destination prior to doing the actual transfer.
