I want to create a script that will copy the virus defs from one SEPM to another.  Is this possible and were are the defs located?

yoyu may attempt to try

\Program Files\Symantec\ Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Inetpub\content folder on SEPM has the definition.

Are the  SEPM of the same version?

yes the sepm servers are on the same version.  The second sepm server has 2 nics. the first nic talks to the first sepm server and and the 2 nic talks to another network.  I want to copy the files from the 1 sepm server to 2 sepm server.

hi,

Virus defination folder is not recommended.

You can configure Live Update Setting

Go to Admin --> Servers --> Local Site --> Right click local site --> Liveupdate --> Download  Schedule--> Edit Download Scheduled as per requirement  

Also check following article:
