CA Antivirus update questions

Hello there. The company I work for has about 2000 windows workstations and about 30 windows servers. The antivirus we have for now, expires in about 15 days and we have already decided and order the CA antivirus solution. But before i get the software and install it, I need to know some things.

 I have read somewhere that the main CA antivirus server gives the updates to two sub-servers, which are responsible to distribute the updates to the clients. Does the number of the clients affects the number of the sub-servers, or 2-3 is the recomendation of CA? If a sub-server goes down, does the other ones do its job till it's back? And something for the end. Does vlans affect these sub-servers? Meaning, would we need 2-3 update servers for all the vlans or we will be in need for a server for each vlan. Please assume that we have allowed this kind of traffic from any vlan to another. Thanks in advance!
