I am at the linux computer, this is from the man page:

      -L, --copy-links
              When symlinks are encountered, the item that they point
to (the referent) is copied, rather than the symlink.  In older
versions of rsync, this  option
              also had the side-effect of telling the receiving side
to follow symlinks, such as symlinks to directories.  In a modern
rsync such as this one, you’ll
              need to specify --keep-dirlinks (-K) to get this extra
behavior.  The only exception is when sending files to an rsync that
is too old to understand -K
              -- in that case, the -L option will still have the
side-effect of -K on that older receiving rsync.
