AGs and Redo Latency

David Fowler explains that even in synchronous mode, there can still be redo latency for Availability Groups:

There’s a misconception that if you have a synchronous replica, that replica has to commit any transactions that are passed to it by the primary before the primary can then commit those same transactions. This ensures that there is no possibility of data loss and that the data would always be available on the secondary.

With this misconception comes our problem.
