    The resolution doesn't matter. It's a bug I experience a lot with picture symbols when exporting to PDFs. Sometimes it works fine and other times the exact same symbol comes out like it did for you. I've tried absolutely everything I can think of to prevent it from happening. What I would suggest in this instance is just making it a character symbol. The symbol you showed above can be made using character markers which will prevent the glitching of the fidelity when exporting. – Adam Kara Sep 13 '16 at 13:44

I converted the JPG file into EMF file using Inkscape, then imported the symbol into the ArcMap. That's how it looks after the exportation:
