The 499 response is never send, it's just as status for logs to
show that client closed connection before nginx was able to reply

You description suggests that load balancer uses half-closed tcp
connection for health checks (i.e. shuts down it's part of a tcp
connection after sending request). This will result in
499 for proxied requests, as nginx will detect connection close
from client and will terminate request. You may use

proxy_ignore_client_abort on;
# or fastcgi_ignore_client_abort, whatever you use

to prevent nginx from doing connection close checks. It will stop
it from detecting connection close from clients as well though, so
you may want to limit this setting to health checks only by adding
separate location for health checks.

Alternatively, you may want to fix your load balancer to keep
connection open, not half-closed.
