Contacts not synchronizing correctly

I just did a hard reset on my HTC Dash phone, and am trying to sync it with my Vista laptop (and Outlook 2007) using Windows Mobile Device Center. The problem is that it appears to successfully sync, and in fact, most of my contacts are synced, but a substantial number of them are not being pulled over to the phone. When I go into Outlook and make a small change to a contact that did not sync, it immediately syncs upon saving the changes.

Any idea what is going on and/or how I can make sure that all contacts are synced?
