During the current synchronization, the new anchor command provides a new anchor value. Changes that are made after the last received anchor value and before the new received anchor value are synchronized. The new received anchor is then stored and used as the last received anchor value for the next synchronization. For more information, see the "Determining Which Data Changes to Download to a Client" section of Tracking Changes in the Server Database.
