For me this is the most important feature that we miss in Samba4 AD 
First, IMHO , I don't see mounting a rsync server as the most easy way
but in that page have a crucial clue  which is just write GPO(s) in
But we need not forget  "To use a Sysvol Replication workaround, all
domain controllers (DC) must use the same ID mappings for built-in
users and groups". This sentence should be also write in  , I missed
this in one DC and just some months after I did the sync of Built-in
User & Group ID Mappings, after this should I run a full replications
or something like that ? don't have this feature is a big confusion ...
Also in , we have unison in Centos 7, so for me is the easy way ,
although unison can sweep all data in seconds (when we copy with
preserve dates it is tricky) so it is more than recommend backup all
file system first. And a better detail of what rsync parameter does on
"Add to Crontab on DC1 Add to Crontab on DC1".
Lastly we may add a notes IIRC for Sync with multiple servers
