Why should they be synchronised? They represent different conditions. 
gidNumber of the posixAccount entry represents the users primary group (as in 
the 4th field of the /etc/passwd file), while the memberUid attribute of a 
posixGroup entry represents additional groups the user is a member of (as 
indicated in the list of users in the 4th field of the /etc/group file).
