Sync Frames; best place to apply

I am working with SyncIn and SyncOut chops and have been wondering about the optimal practices for applying the sync frames for video playback & other processes.

For example my current set-up is…

Host machine has a /base with a time component running independently; through a timeline operator, we feed current frames into a SyncOut chop.

Server(s) have the realtime flag off.
They each have a /base with a MODIFIED time component.
The modification comes from inserting the SyncIn frames from the Host into the switch operator called op(‘independent’) and having that switch toggled to pass the sync frames.

This appears to work as intended, and the idea being that we understand this to mean all processes within the base are then being cooked in syncronization with the Host.

Is this accurate, is this ideal, and if not - or even if yes - what are some other practices used for applying sync frames?

Thanks TD community for any thoughts/advice!
