It depends on what kind of keyserver you have set up.  If it's the
OpenLDAP sort, then they don't sync with other servers (except in the
LDAP sense of sync - and there aren't any public servers that sync
that way).  If it's SKS or PKS, then you can sync via email.

Your best bet is to subscribe to the pgp-keyserver-folk list at:

Nearly every operator of a public keyserver is a member, and you can
get all the information you need there.
