Which version of SharePoint are you running? – Mike Oryszak Sep 12 '10 at 20:40

restarting the timer services should resolve the issue if the server is healthy.

You can also run stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs to initiate any pending changes immediately.

We faced a similar problem in MOSS 2007 environment . where the webapplication is created in one server and it is not created in the other.

The steps which we did was delete the webapplication first

Restart the timer services in both the WFE and try creating a webapplication . This should solve
