No one did mention the retention policy ;)

Jokes aside, we have a working solution with zfs/symantec netbackup combo based on incremental snapshots
for a pretty large datasets. 

To OP: you don't have to use ftp with zfs send/recieve (I doubt it is possible at all :) ), ssh suits better. 
Just _google_ for it. There are plenty of solutions/examples in the Net.
