This is due to udev recreating everything in /dev at system boot. You can
create a udev rule to create the symlink at boot.

Edit your /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules and somewhere after the line that
has 'KERNEL=="tty[pqrstuvwxyzabcdef][0123456789abcdef]"' add a line that
contains the following:

KERNEL=="ttyS0", SYMLINK+="modem"

This should cause the symlink to be created at boot. Be careful to maintain
permissions and structure on all udev rules files as you can cause some real
headaches for yourself if they become corrupted.
