Is the sync the same as the sync on NFS? As in setting async make
the network
run at a reasonable speed?

In a sense it is. Like NFS, the USB stick it updates the directory
structure, I am not sure if before or after, when it writes a sector up.
In nfs, it is similiar, in that it guarantees that the nfs directory are
updated with the data over the network. I could be wrong about this,
though.

If the sync is on, and it is not clear that 10.1 and 10.2 has it on, the
sync ensures that the disk is in proper state. Thus, if you let it
complete the write operation, the command prompt command, it is
equivalent yu doing an immediate sync command.
