Sync should converge given a well-enough connected network and enough nodes within it running sync, although I lack a full proof of this and haven't tried to quantify the details. (Joachim Breitner may have one). There was a bug that caused a "commit ladder" in gitk, but a kind user pointed out the problem and it's been fixed for a while; git-annex merge does fast-forward merges whenever possible. -- see shy jo
