Sorry I skipped the part in the man-page. Still I could not figure out
the sync-xvfb part in the man pages.

After reading the --desktop-scaling part, the parameter allows to
control the server's x resolution on the fly.

But I am trying to do the other way round. The server's virtual X
remains at the 4K resolution while the client's varies according to
the physical screen attached.

Thanks again,
