I updated Lightroom CC yesterday, July 25, 2017, and now when I try to Synchronize Settings, the white balance changes in the destination images. When I tried synchronizing four images, each of the three being synched had different WBs, and none of them were the WB from the source image. When I tried synchronizing just one image, the destination image had all the right settings from the source image, except for the WB, which changed to a very blue WB.

I haven't (so far) been able to duplicate what you are seeing Ann. I wonder if your preference file is wonky?

Sometimes weird behavior is corrected/cured by resetting the preferences. 

Reset Procedure:

1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom. 
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.

Does the behavior continue after resetting the preferences?
