How Can I transfer License Server (Service) from Windows 2000 server to Windows 2003 server?

I had a Windows 2000 server (Server A) as a primary domain controller, DNS, DHCP, WINS, FSMO masters and GC servers. We've recently installed another two Windows 2003 servers (Server B and Server C) and sucessfully transferred DNS, GC to Server B and Server C and DHCP, FSMO operation masters to Server B. Everything seems runing properly.

I am planning to demote Server A, the Windows 2000 server from domain controller. I've noticed Server A is a license server and has License Logging service running on that. Somehow, I've also realized  License Logging service are disabled on Server B and C, two new Windows 2003 server.

Do I need to transfer license server from Windows 2000 server Server A to Windows 2003 server? And How? Thanks in advance.
