Flash sync is 1/250th of a second for the A7RIII. I am surprised you are getting a black band. Is it along the edge? Flash mounted on camera? If it is, then if using a large lens with a lens hood may cast a shadow. Most of the time you can get quite a bit more shutter speed than the published sync speed by going manual. I can get 1/400th of a second with my Olympus before a dark band begins to appear. More information would be helpful to diagnose your issue.
