I'm the Cygwin maintainer for Unison.

My Debian host has
$ apt-cache policy unison
*** 2.13.16-6 0
990 http://http.us.debian.org testing/main Packages
300 http://http.us.debian.org unstable/main Packages
200 http://http.us.debian.org stable/main Packages
So I'm guessing that your development server is still using a locally
installed copy from a long while back, and the sysadmins haven't updated.
Or, they may have a newer version such as 2.13 installed too, and you only
need to change which version your client talks to, e.g.
unison -servercmd /usr/bin/unison-2.13.16
or some such.
which -a unison
might provide some useful information here.

No need to rename any current versions, since they're already named by their
$ cd /usr/bin
