Adding domain controller to SBS domain

I am going to use the transition pack to move my SBS 2003 server to server 03.  I will alco purchase the needed CALS to transition.
My question is after this transition is all done I want to now add a second domian controller, also server 03 with exchange loaded on it.
How do the CALS work in that situation?  I will have enough cals on one server for all my users.
On my new machine I will have it loaded it exchange as well so I want users to be able to connect to both servers.  Do I need to add more cals to the second machine?

Generally, you only need to purchase the Exchange CALs.  The real answer though is to consult your MS licensing professional.
The transition pack turns all of your CALs from SBS in to separate product CALs.
Therefore if you had 25 SBS CALs, then you will have 25 Windows CALs and 25 Exchange CALs. Most people license Windows per seat and Exchange is always per seat, so no more CALs will be required, unless you are going over 25.
