I'm after some advice on the distribution database:
1. Would a distribution log file shrink cause the subscriber database to become out of sync?  And if so would the job the fail?
2. Does the synchronization job run continuously or is it scheduled?
3. What exactly is held in the distribution database and log file?
4. What would be the faster way to repair the distribution database and subscribers if q 1. is true?

1.  Nothing causes the log to shrink by itself...you might have a db maint plan that truncates the log, which would hose you in this situation.
2.  Both...depends on how you have it setup.
3.  The distribution db holds the transactions before they're distributed to the subscribers.
4.  It depends on what the problem is.
