Not at all. If you mean by 'a bit off' do they always come where expected?' then it's no, here and there but you know what? It keeps well in touch with its basic rhythm and the syncopation only adds interest. 

Have a listen to the Rite of Spring.

I agree that the syncopation is not an issue, and Quinn cites a good example. It's mainly the counterpoint in the a' sections of every phrase once the percussion comes in that kind of clash that may be the reason you think it might sound a little off. It's not bad, and you don't even have to change it, it's just that audiences (including yourself) will hear those lines as a fluid line jumping in register because of the quick pace. You could even rhythmically highlight that! Nothing wrong with that, just something to be aware of.
