If one firewall needs to be able to take over from a failing one, it needs the same states.

Have you tried to increase the logging level? From the carp man page:

net.inet.carp.log	       Value of 0 disables any logging.  Value of 1
			       enables logging of bad carp packets.  Values
			       above 1 enable logging state changes of carp
			       interfaces.  Default value is 1.
From the FreeBSD 7.3 man page of pfsync:

     Possibility to view state changes using tcpdump(1) has not been ported
     from OpenBSD yet.
Unfortunately for you

You could ask on the OpenBSD misc list, but you will be surely told to drop FreeBSD and try the latest and greatest OpenBSD. The OpenBSD pf devs, usually have no idea which pf version FreeBSD 7.x is using.

Have you seen ?
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
