Group policy that points them to the WSUS server.

Microsoft has detailed information (oh my, 10 seconds on google, you know):

The relevant group policy settings are under

Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, and then click Windows Update.

and there you then set the URL of the WSUS server (including port number).
