If you want to pursue it further, just drop me an email (jim (at) five12 <dot> com), perhaps with some juggling of settings we can get it working better for you.

BTW: If you have not complained to Apple about the "AU MIDI Output not supported in Logic/Mainstage" issue, I highly recommend you do that now:
Once they fix that, all these latency and timing issues will go away....

As of 3.0.2, sync via MIDI provides the most accurate timing -- i.e. the least jitter between notes, but in both cases, you will see some latency (a delay in MIDI relative to the original source) due to MIDI transmission through the system. In N3 Pro, you can use the ClockOffset module to tweak latency, but as that module is tempo-based, it isn't very convenient to use on a regular basis.

In 3.1 the ReWire driver will have an option to use a more accurate scheduling algorithm (long story...), and there will be a new latency compensation option for the app both in standalone and ReWire modes.
