This option is used by Endpoint Protection clients to download definition updates if they have not been able to download updates from another source.

This update method can be useful if there is a problem with your Configuration Manager infrastructure that prevents the delivery of updates.

This method can be useful when the client does not have connectivity to the Configuration Manager site or when you want users to be able to initiate definition updates.

I have a Symantec Corporate Edition 10.01 since 2006 and the definitions stopped updating the first week of July 2013.

This is done in the Configure Definition Update Sources dialog box when you create an antimalware policy.

You can configure Configuration Manager software updates to deliver definition updates to client computers.

For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 938947.

When you select to download definition updates from Microsoft Update, clients will check the Microsoft Update site at the interval defined in the Definition updates section of the antimalware policy dialog box.
