You can use the GetScrollInfo and the SetScrollInfo API calls to synchronize the listboxs something like...

GetScrollinfo(Listbox1.Handle, SB_CTL, SIF_POS or SIF_RANGE or SIF_PAGE );

SetScrollinfo(Listbox2.Handle, SB_CTL, SIF_POS or SIF_RANGE or SIF_PAGE, True);

To create an OnScroll event you can try this...it's just an example I have not tested it so I'm not sure if it will work....

private
FOnScroll : TNotifyEvent;

protected
procedure CMScroll(var Message: TMessage); message CM_SCROLL;

published
property OnScroll: TNotifyEvent read FOnScroll write FOnScroll;

then the procedure...

procedure TListBoxEx.CMScroll(var Message: TMessage);
begin
  inherited;
    if Assigned (FOnScroll) then FOnScroll(Self);
end;

It's a good idea to process the Scoll message,but if you don't want to write a new component,you can try this:
you can set the property "Style" of the listbox to "lbOwnerDrawFixed",so the ListBox wil occur the "OnDrawItem" Even when it be scrolled and you can Synchronized the listbox on this event, BUT YOU MUST DRAW THE ITEMS IN THE LISTBOX YOURSELF,SORRY.

by the way, you can synchronize the listboxes by this way:
  ListBox2.TopIndex:=ListBox1.TopIndex;
