Won't work: pdfsync patches the \include command, but leaves the \input 
command alone. The viewer application subsequently doesn't know in 
which source file to look and pdfsync breaks down. Actually \include 
does a whole lot more than \input (switching aux files, ...).

Your best bet is to apply the same technique pdfsync uses on the 
include command and use it on \input. Have a look inside the 
pdfsync.sty file to see which parts to copy. Ensure that you save the 
old definition of \input or nasty things will happen.
