We have many clients that are remote users that do not connect to the Trend Micro server that is within our LAN, so I would normally just create a Client Installer Package, which would update definitions directly from the web.
You could also put a relay agent in the DMZ and allow it to recieve updates, it would then update the remaining servers.
