Regrettably, recorded timing and synchronization of audio tracks is a very weak point in Keynote, and has been lamented in numerous postings in this forum. Manual clicks seem to be more reliable than "automatic" Builds or Transitions when trying to maintain proper sync. This is because not all "seconds" are executed equally with Keynote: the actual amount of time required for Builds, Transitions, and "Durations" is not consistent - not even within the same computer, and especially not when transporting a presentation from one computer to another.
Until Apple makes significant improvements to the way audio is implemented in Keynote, we all will have to live with the various workarounds that we have to devise.
