Create a GPO for only your servers and include these settings:

computer->admin templates->windows components->windows updates->

configure automatic updates
1.   set to '4' - auto download and schedule the install
2.  set the day (mine is 1 - Every Sunday)
3.  Schedule isntall time (mine is set to 8:00 am)

No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic update installations->
1.  Enabled

after you create the GPO apply to only your servers, run gpupdate /force on a server then gpresult to make sure it has the changes.
