SEP 12.1 RU1 - Pull or Push?

So... the first bit of information I learned today was at work. 

Another network administrator has informed me that the default client/server communication method in the RU1 update for Symantec Endpoint Protection version 12.1 (yes it is a mouthful - and a bitter tasting one, I'll explain one day) uses Pull mode rather than Push as default.
Apparently push mode means that client/server comm's is constant, so that any policy changes etc can be instantly 'pushed' to clients.  Not ideal in large networks, so they've changed that to pull, where changes are sent after the hearbeat cycle.

Now, I didn't know that, until now.
