our company  provide  WEB Service to client - fill out documents on line.
Now Clients want  to download  pdf document to their client side.
Some document are huge, And we have a lot of clients.
What the best scenario  could be in the situation ?
Ideally I would like to have  some event driven Windows Service.
So when document is filed  out , event occurred. If Client is subscribed to this event,
WCF  download the pdf to the client side . This way , I guess we avoid transferring huge amount of data via network.
So should I use WCF? Or it could be another architectural solution?

While a publish-subscribe scenario is possible with WCF, it may not be appropriate in your scenario since your clients are remote which precludes the use of NetTcpBinding or NetNamedPipes binding. Using WSDualHttpBinding is troublesome as well.

A more appropriate solution would have the server send a message to a queue which the client can monitor. The message's payload would be the PDF document. You may want to have a look at Windows Azure service bus and queues if Azure is a possibility for you.

But a more simpler solution would be to give the client the URL of the PDF document when it is ready - a rest style service. Either way you are going to have to transfer possibly large files over the network so may as well make the solution as simple as possible.

Hope this helps.
