The BDB documentation states

  "database integrity will be maintained"

http://www.sleepycat.com/docs/api_c/env_set_flags.html#DB_TXN_NOSYNC

The question "is it safe" can only be answered if you define what
"safe" means. Read the BDB documentation and decide if you can accept
the consequences. FWIW (nothing!) I have a repository that has had
DB_TXN_NOSYNC in DB_CONFIG for several months.
