Once per day or when the bayes_journal_max_size is exceeded (default is 
100Kb) whichever is sooner, or manually via 'sa-learn --sync'.

In reality I've never had issues with using this.  Bayes is useful when 
it works, but if you have locking issues and your per-message scan times 
are >30 secs because of bayes updates, this makes a massive difference.
