I'm confused with regards to licencing.

I have an SBS 2003 server and have now added a 2003 Std server.

For 20 users do I need 20 SBS Cals and 20 2003 Std server Cals.

Hi
this is an answer from Microsoft site about sbs licensing:
Do additional servers in my SBS 2003 R2 network require a CAL to connect to the domain?  
 
A. You do not need a CAL for additional servers to connect to the domain.
 
Q. I want to have additional servers running Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003 on my SBS 2003 R2 domain. Do my users need CALs to access those servers?
 
A. No. Your SBS 2003 R2 CALs allow your users to access any additional servers running Windows Server software in the domain. You do not need to buy additional CALs for file and print services, or to access additional servers running Exchange Server 2003 or SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition. However, you will need to purchase Terminal Server CALs if you have a server running Terminal Services in application mode on your network.
 
here is the link to this page

So the answer is NO, unles you use Terminal server
