How to use sccm 2012 Distrubution point groups

I'm running 2012 sccm R2 and have 1 primary site and about 22 DP's  scattered all over the globe.

How can I benefit from A DP group? I;m confused on what it's really used for and how it can help me.

I see I can take all my DP's and put them into one DP group and push content to the DP group, then it will get added to all the DP's.

does this have any benefit fit on Fall back if a DP if down and I'm pushing a deployment out?

I guess I;m looking to make sure that my DP's have fall back in case one DP goes down the client point to another DP for their packages or apps.

If you use a DP group then you don't have to select DPs one by one.

If you have directed a package to a DP group today then if you add a new DP after 6 months, that DP will automatically copy the packages sent to the DP.

This is not for fallback.
