sync data between 2 servers

We have 2 Windows domains that trust each other in 2 separate buildings. We would like the data from one server to sync the data with the other server. Is there something built into windows server that will allow us to do this. Will that work between 2 domains that trust each other.

Thanks

Which data you want to sync? For files and folders u can use microsofts robocopy: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&DisplayLang=en (options of robocopy: http://www.ss64.com/nt/robocopy.html)

Must members of a replication group reside in the same domain?

No. Replication groups can span across domains within a single forest but not across different forests.
