If I have pve-zsync running every 15 minutes using, for example, --maxsnap 2 and take a snapshot backup that takes 6 hours will the snapshot created by the backup interfere with the removal of pve-zsync snapshots? Do I need to pve-zsync disable in this situation?

No, it will not interfere.
Anyway, you create only zfs snapshots if you use LXC.
Qemu does not create any snapshots in snapshot mode.

Thanks for getting back

Is this true for a zvol on both sides of pve-zsync? ie Can I also take a snapshot of the receive side without the pve-zsync snapshots clashing?

You can do but it will delete after sync. Because all on the source side this snapshot is not existing.
