All computers are equal and data from each computer is send to the Sync server and will be merged to the other connected computer. This can take time though if a large amount of data is involved.

If you tried this and it works ... please write your steps down! I tried this more than one time in many ways and only got dupes, "undeleted" bookmarks and sometimes sync resets itself or renames the computer ... asked for help here but got only a question back I can't fullfill because of missing details! ;-(
