You should buy the book by Sven B. Schreiber.
"Undocumented Windows 2000 Secrets: A Programmer's Cookbook"
It's completelly described there.

Chapter One .....The chapter closes down with detailed descriptions of the layouts of Microsoft CodeView and Program Database (PDB) files, complemented by a sample symbol file parser DLL and an accompanying client application.

Undocumented Windows 2000 Secrets

Here full sources from book:

Or you can fetch some info with the help of MS DIA SDK (part of the VS.NET).

PS: Don't search for e-book of Schreiber, there is not one at all.

.sym files are part of w95/98 ddk.
For NT, debug info is provided in form of .dbg files.
But, unfortunatelly, i don't know anything about difference between them.
