"Published Desktop" is what the user gets as desktop from the server.
"Virtual Desktop" is the virtual desktop of the user.

You can give users access to the server's, hopefully, locked down desktop by publishing it.  THis is simple to do.  Create a group policy to prevent users from doing things like shutting down or restarting the server, applying Windows updates, etc and then when you run the publish application wizrd there is a selection for Desktop.  When you select that radio button, the server's desktop will now be available to the users you allow from the servers you select.

"Virtual Desktop" can mean several things.  Usually people mean giving users access to a desktop operating system image (i.e. XP, Vista, Windows 7) as opposed to a server's desktop (i.e. Server 2003, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2).  This is usually done through products like Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View, among offerings also from Quest, Symantec, etc.
