OneDrive doesnt support sync with network shares. So you will either have to move the files locally, or sync on the server.

You can redirect the documents folder to their (local) ODFB folder as detailed for example here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/25220.onedrive-for-business-folder-redirection-gpo.aspx

If you go for such solution, I'd definitely recommend using the new, next-gen sync client as it's far more reliable.
