[URGENT] merge replication – instant updates

hi all, I’ve been studying a few days replication because we have to implement it in near future.
At first sight, merge replication will suit us the best, because sometimes our subscribers cann be offline AND also subscribers have to merge their updates to the server. Now, after reading all documentation I did a test and it seems that -when connected-, updates are INSTANTLY done in the subscriber database. (while i thought the data was only replicated when indicated in the scheduler). Is this normal that my data is immediately replicated?
