--backup-dir and daemon mode

Is it possible to use --backup-dir= with a daemon mode target?  I have 
been attempting to use --backup and --backup-dir= with a daemon mode 
server I use as target for an rsync command that "pushes" from the 
server needing backing up, and have met with no luck - I keep getting 
broken pipe errors, and attempts to create directories like 
"user at" on the server doing the rsyncing's own 

If anybody's ever tried doing this kind of thing, your experience would 
be very helpful.
