Synchronous override

The synchronous override mode of replication is a mode where replication is synchronous, as long as the Secondary host is accessible over the network. If the network becomes unavailable, then replication is continued in the asynchronous mode. When the Secondary host becomes available the pending updates are sent to the Secondary from the Replicator Log. When the data becomes completely consistent then the replication mode reverts back to being synchronous.
