I don't think it does because in the class Father, test() is overriden. I believe that you need the synchronized keyword still.

Synchronized dont participate in Overriding or any OO paradigm
So to make it thread-safe you need to do it at the each individual class
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
