Yes, this gives the right synctex file.  However, without the "-no-pdf" option, XeLaTeX ONLY sets the Offsets to 0 without any changes to the contents, which could be wrong: it gives wrong position information. For example,  in the following lines of a synctex,=================X Offset:0
Y Offset:0
]====================== the coordinates for the position should increase by 4736287. PS: The synctex file generated with XeLaTeX (TL2011) does not work with SumatraPDF et al, due to the same reason. Best,Kan
