Do you have AD?  There's a .adm that you can plug into group policy that comes with the SUS install that can push that configuration off to any number of clients, which is how we do it.  As additional SUS boxes come online, I'm planning on just reconfiguring through a GPO.
Unfortunately, we don't have AD for the students. So far, I haven't seen 
any errors
in the logs and two machines have updated using one of the "secondary" 
DNS names.
Sure wish I knew exactly how that configuration setting in SUS was used
