    If you are syncing with Mac OS X Address Book, you have to actively remove it from the "backup" group on the Mac, I believe.

    In that case, don't delete it on the phone, but remove it from the group in AddressBook on the Mac. That will (should) remove it from the phone the next time you sync.
