cannot upload broken symlinks

It may happen that the fs on the ftp server is different that on the client so on machine where you do not have ssh or any other type of access it is legitimate to create symbolic links that are broken on your local machine but will work fine on the remote site.
Unfortunately filezilla follow the link, do some checks on the file that fails and abor the upload.

Filezilla 3.3.3

The FTP specification does not allow uploading of symbolic links, so FileZilla correctly uploads whatever the symbolic link refers to.

If you are lucky, the FTP server provides a SITE command to create symbolic links. Or you mabye can use SFTP and create a symbolic link using that protocol.
