I'm using server on OpenBSD 3.4 to backuping data from remote server via rsync.On backup server I am install rsync-2.5.6 and on remote machine rsync-2.5.7 (RedHat 8.0) . 

For backuping data I'm using the following command :

rsync -av -e ssh backup at log:/var/backup/ALL-15-Mar.tar /var/backup/3

This command copy file ALL-15-Mar.tar from host log(RedHat box) to local directory on OpenBSD.
The I'm execute thos command I see the same error:

mkstemp .ALL-15-Mar.tar.T30894 failed: Permission denied
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at /usr/obj/i386/rsync-2.5.6/rsync-2.5.6/main.c(1045)

What I'm doing incorrectly ? What does this error mean?
The permissions on log is following :

[root at localhost backup]# ls -la
total 848000
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         4096 Mar 15 14:01 .
drwxr-xr-x   34 root     root         4096 Mar 10 14:19 ..
-rwxr-xr-x    1 backup   backup   867491840 Mar 15 01:31 ALL-15-Mar.tar
