Question on sync functionality

We have 1 remote database, and syncs happen at least once if not twice a day.


We are deleting significant numbers of contacts from our database right now and I wondered how sync works in this scenario:


1.  Remote user syncs

2.  Local user places 200 records in a "Delete these contacts" group.

3.  The administrator deletes those 200 records

4.  Remote user syncs


Is the sync cumulative?  Meaning, will it first sync the group change, and then delete them from the remote database?  Or will it simply delete the records, since that was the last action on those contacts?


The sync log shows results for groups first, so I'm assuming that it will do the group change first, then the contact delete second.  Just wanted to be sure.
