I don't think you will find much information in this area as it tends to 
fall outside of the normal usage of memcached.  Although, it has been 
discussed before in this list and some people are working towards a 
solution for this.

These links and others in this thread might be of use to you.

May I ask, why are you wanting to synchronize a group of memcached servers?
