Is your Terminal server License server on the 2003 system? If it is are your licenses showing up there?

That's due to the upgrade.
You probably had your TS License Server running on one of your terminal servers. Now that the terminal server is member of an AD domain, the TS LS won't start anymore (you'll find an antry in the event log on the former LS).
Install the TS licensing server on your W2k3 DC, and activate it. The W2k3 TS LS can completely handle a Windows 2000 terminal server.
Uninstall it from the W2k TS (or set the service to Disabled).
As for your TS CALs, call the Microsoft Clearinghouse, tell them that you need to have your licenses reissued. They're used to that, it's the only way to move a TS LS to another machine ...
