(Books Online description: “Occurs during synchronization of replication schema version information. This state exists when DDL statements are executed on the replicated object, and when the log reader builds or consumes versioned schema based on DDL occurrence. This wait type is also used by log reader agent to synchronize memory access. If a publisher has large number of very active published databases and log reader agents, contention can be seen on this wait type.”)
