The answer is YES!!  Server client access licenses are for concurrent connections.  Terminal server connections are licensed separately.  You will need to purchase terminal server access licenses and set up terminal service license management on one of your servers (the same one will work).  Microsoft manages terminal server licensing much more strenuously that any of its other licensing.
