Facebook status updates occur at the user profile level regardless of what page you're on.  You're able to update a status from the news feed page, the personal profile page, etc...but if you update the status in one place or another, it does the same thing.

Using the API to update a status updates it for a user's profile across the board.  Or am I misunderstanding your question?

You can create business pages and link them to your personal account, see http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php

How do you use the graph protocol to update the status of the business page, NOT the main personal page?

Ah, yes, the old "fan" pages, now just referred to as "pages"..."subpages" threw me off, sorry 'bout that.

The Facebook forums at one time indicated this was not yet possible:
http://forum.developers.facebook.net/viewtopic.php?pid=155004

If you follow that thread, there's an article where someone got it working with Ruby, but I'm assuming since this question's category is PHP, that's your preference--his workaround may give some principles to follow, though.

One more link if you've not seen it.  This article: http://getsatisfaction.com/pingfm/topics/posting_updates_to_facebook_fan_pages_api_supports_it

...suggests you can use the code below.  This was published some time ago, but I believe the feed_publishTemplatizedAction function still works.
$facebook->api_client->feed_publishTemplatizedAction($feed_title_template, $feed_title_data, $feed_body_template, "", $page_id, $feed_image, $feed_image_link);
