Feeding syrup can induce them to draw comb, but the risk is that they'll store syrup to the point that their cells for brood rearing are mostly taken and the queen can't really get a good pattern going. If you keep feeding, make sure to check frequently and if they're saving up much syrup for sure cut it off. Also there's the risk of contaminating a honey crop, if you're hoping to harvest on year 1. If not it's not a worry they'll consume it over winter at the latest.
