I am not completely sure if the Query Table is a supported Data Source.

00004: Layer's data source is not supported—Documentation | ArcGIS Enterprise 

Unsupported data sourcesSuggested alternatives

ArcInfo coverage

Convert the data to feature classes in a geodatabase.


Import CAD content into a geodatabase feature class.

Excel file

Generate features for each Excel spreadsheet and load the resulting feature classes into a geodatabase feature class.

ArcIMS feature service

Load the original data source into a geodatabase feature class.

In-memory feature class

Save in-memory data as a feature class in a geodatabase.

Also, Make Query Table—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop 

The layer that is created by the tool is temporary and will not persist after the session ends unless the document is saved.

So this "maybe" the issue.

Do you have this patch applied? What version of Server are you running?

I don't think non-persistent data sources, (like the output of the Make Query Table tool), are supported.  You can try to create a view in the database/geodatabase that joins the tables so a data source is persisted there and see if you can publish.
