We study synchronization conditions for distributed dynamic networks with different types of leaders. The role of a "power" leader specifying a desired global state trajectory through local interactions has long been recognized and modeled. This note introduces the complementary notion of a "knowledge" leader holding information on the target dynamics, which is propagated to the entire network through local adaptation mechanisms.
