We investigate the way in which noise destroys phase synchronization in chaotic systems. Two cases are considered: where the route to synchronization involves frequency locking; and where it occurs via a suppression of the natural dynamics. We show that, just as in the case of synchronization of periodic oscillations, noise induces a new motion whose coherence depends non-monotonically (resonantly) on the noise intensity.
