It didn't work.  Either with texexec or with context.

Here is a simpler test case
-------------------------------- start
% basic test to change footnotes bullet to a symbol
% basice test to change footnotes bullet to a symbol
%   \setupfootnotes[rule=off]   % had no affect

\defineconversion[fnsym]{ \dagger,*,**,***}  % etc.

\setupfootnotes[conversion=fnsym, numberconversion=fnsym]           % Doesn't 
work
\setupnotation[footnote][numberconversion=fnsym,alternative=text]   % Doesn't 
work
%  conversion=set fnsym  or conversion=fnsym                does't work
%  numberconversion=fnsym or numberconversion=set fnsym     doesn't work

\starttext
This is a footnote\footnote{a fnote}\\
And another for clarity\footnote{the 2nd footnote.}
\stoptext

----------------end the above does not produce a dagger footnote bullet (only 
std numbers)

\defineconversion[fnsym][\dagger,*,**,***]

\setupnotation
  [footnote]
  [numberconversion=fnsym,
   alternative=text]  % <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< wrong alternative

\starttext
    \dorecurse {10} {
        This has note #1. \footnote{note #1}
    }
\stoptext

There is no alternative text. I've added an extra catch for that (fallback to 'left').
