SBS 2003 Premium and SP2

We currently have SBS  2003 Premium acting as our Exchange Server, Fileshare and PDC (naturally).  I am trying to figure out if I absolutely need to have SP2 installed.  I know under most normal circumstances it is a good idea to upgrade/fix, but I've read some conflicting information both here and elsewhere.  Currently, our server is at SP1.

Anyway, if I log into our SBS server and run Windows Update, I am told that "Windows Server 2003 SP2" is available for installation.  However, I've read elsewhere that there really is no SP2 for SBS 2003.  Is it safe to presume that "Windows SErver 2003 SP2" is meant for all versions of Window Server 2003?
