Directory Sync uses LDAP queries to retrieve objects from AD. If you're not familiar with searching AD with LDAP queries, it highly recommended you read through the following Microsoft article. Especially the sections, "Basic Qeury Syntax" and "Doing a Search Using Active Directory Users and Computers.
This article will help you gain a better understanding of how LDAP queries are used by the synchronizatoin agent to find AD objects.
The default query can be found in ADSync.exe.config under Configuration > ADSync.Settings > OrganizationUnits > Units > Unit > Qeury. Multiple Unit sections can be added for customized queries.
This query will return all contacts who's targetAddress,mail,displayName,mailNickname,givenName,sn fields are populated. And it will return all users who's displayName,mailNickname,givenName,sn fields are populated. The base of the query is the entire domain.
Each Unit can have all or one of following options.
Root: Specify the distingquished name of the Organizational Unit to use as the root of the LDAP query. If not specifed, the root of the domain will be used.
Query: Specify the LDAP query. If not specified all objects classes will be returned.
DomainController: Specify the DC FQDN to use. example dc01.mydomain.local .
Project Managers: OU=Project Managers,OU=DepartmentB,DC=beta,DC=local
Only Users and Contacts where displayName begins in "John"
Root Domain: beta.local
The default properties synced for each object can be found under Configuration > ADSync.Settings > OptionalProperties > Properties. All properties supported are already listed. To customize, comment or remove any unwanted properties.
