AD not syncing among servers

We have 5 servers in operation.  DC, Exchange, SQL, Web and a Terminal server.  They don't seem to be syncing correctly.  We are running Server 2003 on all these.

Here some symptoms:

A user changed his password while on 'remote' (terminal) but it doesn’t reflect that change when he logs on his laptop
I am not able to access iSQL or Sharepoint anymore
I created a new user and he can get into remote but not outlook or sharepoint
I went into the event log and saw there are 1202 warnings being created
How can I check that the security policies are being synced consistantly?

You are having replication problems and should solve them first before looking if the security policy was deployed correctly. See http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/4f504103-1a16-41e1-853a-c68b77bf3f7e1033.mspx?mfr=true for a list of things to check / do.
