Software Deployment Question
Detect and Deploy vs Deploy (only)

We've always had our monthly Windows server patch schedules run as Detect and Deploy. We also run a daily detect on those servers late afternoon and a nightly patch download at 1am.
It was recently suggested to me that there is no point to using Detect and Deploy when during the patch deployment because it won't get downloaded in time to patch during that run and then it will error with something like "Downloading". They said we only need to use "Deploy" since we run the daily detection. It was a Kace engineer who had assisted with some other things and he knew is way around Kace as well or better than most Kace Engineers I've worked with over the last decade.
Is that correct that Detect and Deploy doesn't work in time to download missing patches during during a given patch schedule?
