You do need to have a network to use syncrhonization. It's been a long time since you could sync using a floppy (USB key in today's world) or email. The host database and it's child/remote databases communicate directly, so their needs to be a network connection between the remote PCs and the 'server'.
Now that doesn't mean you need a real honest to goodness server machine (although for most business applications this is not a bad idea), you can set up a simple wireless peer-to-peer network between your PCs.
