You can exchange mail between organizations and you can create Custom
Recipients to represent users in other organizations, but you CANNOT
use directory synchronization between different organizations.
Anything in the GAL will only be there if it originates within the
organization of you place it there yourself.

There will be a searing moment of agonizing pain when you realize you
cannot do this! You CANNOT perform directroy replication between
different organizations!

The "Planning and Concepts" manual. Or just about any
introductory/intermediate level book on Exchange will have a section
on the organization of exchange.
