Silent is OFF.

What would the SS speed have to do with a trigger/strobes firing? I understand flash sync.

You are right, SS speed should not have anything to do with triggering. The Z9 is even more finicky about 3rd party flash than my z7 II is. With the Z9 and manual flash (Jinbei/orlit for me) I get more even lit images @ 1/160 SS vs 1/200 SS (darker top exposure in landscape mode). Your system might be different.
