aCalendar is not involved in calendar synchronization. The app is just an user interface to the Android calendar storage and does not save any calendar data itself.

Synchronization is always provided by your chosen cloud service. The synchronization option within aCalendar tells Android to tell all cloud calendar services to sync. Your cloud service however should also listen to database changes and sync automatically. If not, most likely some battery saving options block it from doing so.
