Try this link for calculating the licences you need:

http://www.microsoft.com/uk/licensing/manage/default.mspx

and especially:

http://www.microsoft.com/uk/licensing/manage/default.mspx#cal-calculator

Rule of thumb is that you have clients connecting to more than one server, you need Per Seat licenses.
