Depends what your local mirror is. I notice you're in the UK, so are
you using the mirror at unix.hensa.ac.uk, or are you using a proxy cache
downstream of unix.hensa?
If so, I think it's a 'feature' of unix.hensa's FTP mirroring/caching
system. My -guess- is that, when the FTP cache checks a directory on
the original site (ftp.debian.org), it then moves any files which have
disappeared since the last mirror run into .syncfs-deleted/. (This might
be wrong; I ought to actually ask the Hensa admins about it sometime...)
If not, I've no idea what the .syncfs-deleted is.
