The service should start when the computer is booted into Windows. This as a opposed to Manual where you need to start the service yourself, and Disabled which is pretty self-explanatory.

In the worst case, if the service goes down and it was having the startup type as automatic, then it will come up automatically again ?

please share some document of websites which says about this startup type

Commented:
Services have four startup options

Automatic which means the services starts when Windows starts up

Manual which means the services is available and will start when it is needed or called from an application

Disabled which means the service is unavaliable

Automatic Delayed whih means the service will start up automatically when Windows starts up, but there will be a short delay in order to help Windows start quicker.

You should be able to get this and more info by hitting F1 while in the services MMC.  Hope this helps.
