As far as I understood not using it myself, the package pdfsync.sty  
works by inserting certain tags in TeX's PDF output (using pdfTeX, or  
TeX + dvips + Ghostscript). Depending on how XeTeX creates its PDF  
output (using actually xetex + xdv2pdf), these tags may or may not  
work with it.

You might have more luck directing your question to the XeTeX mailing  
list <http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/xetex>, though I think Jonathan  
Kew, the developer of XeTeX, monitors the OS X TeX list also very  

Or have I misunderstood your question, and are you speaking of  
TeXShop's separate PDF synchronization function based on Tiger's PDF  
searching abilities, or to the combination of both, as allowed by  
TeXShop in Preferences > Misc > Sync Method?
