You have to domain active directory servers. When you create a user account, that account is saved within active directory. The active directory database is shared with all other AD servers on the domain by default. So, you are talking about Active Directory Replication, and this is how that works:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755994%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

You can take advantage of the Distributive File System Replication (DFSR). You can create a namespace and use DFSR for that namespace.

There are other means to "synch" with servers.. But, within a windows domain, DFSR and a Namespace is the most common. (it's also a built in feature).

Here is a downloadable white paper on how to do this:

Remember, you are not synchronizing. Instead, you are replicating data from one to the other. Under certain circumstances, the replication can seize or be delayed. So, you have to monitor your DFSR event logs, and also make sure you monitor your FRS (File Replication Service) event logs.
