Answer:

Clio will perform a sync to QuickBooks Online in 5 minute windows, as a general rule. This, however, can change. If a couple of sync windows pass with there being no new data to sync, the window gets a bit bigger (10 mins, 15 mins, etc). The sync window can get up to 2 hours in length. Once there is something new to sync to QuickBooks, the sync window will go back to the default 5 minute window. 

A sync can happen quicker than the above, but this is a general understanding of how the sync process with QuickBooks Online works and why there may be a delay in the sync.
