You are trying to sync a versioned property with invalid format. Unfortunately you will be unable to create revisions using this data as required when syncing into a target repository. The problem is that this cannot be trivially changed as it is the recorded repository history.
You have two options I am aware of:
#1 Use svnadmin hotcopy to create a copy, and do follow-up syncs (svnsync init --allow-non-empty). This assumes that there will be no new revisions with invalid mergeinfos. To prevent this, upgrade your server to a bugfixed version.
#2 Manipulate history to make the mergeinfo property valid.
