It likely was done previously with a symlink, but symlinks no longer function the same way with Dropbox. Dropbox no longer syncs files that are located at the other end of a symlink outside of your Dropbox.

The only way to do it with a symlink now would be to move the Desktop folder into Dropbox (if possible) and place the symlink in the original location pointing back to the Desktop folder in Dropbox.
