sp_helpmergealternatepublisher is used in merge replication.

During every merge session, the system queries both the Publisher and Subscriber for each one's list of alternate publishers. The merge process adds or drops entries in the list of alternate publishers, the result of which is that the list of alternate publishers at both the Subscriber and Publisher match.

Only members of the publication access list for the publication can execute sp_helpmergealternatepublisher.
