If you put a trailing slash on the first directory, i.e.

No, it's the other way round. If you put a slash at the end of the
source directory, it will *not* create a new subdirectory.
But that's just rsync. "cp -a" will copy the source directory as
subdirectory into the target regardless whether the source path ends
with a slash. So the only 'portable' method to specify source paths that
are meant not to create a subdirectory in the target is my "slashdot"
