Looking for some recommendation for my Windows 2003 TS license server.

My main site where all of my production servers live is in City A. I have two Citrix server in City A with Windows 2003 R2 and Citrix Presentation server 4.0. I have remote users accessing the Citrix server in City A over a WAN link. Some user come in over the internet. My 9 remote sites each have a T1 circuit. I have 4 bonded T1's in City A. I have 138 Citrix Presentation 4.0 CALs. I have a total of 150 Windows 2003 terminal server CALs. My license server in City A has 38 user (not device) CALs. At my DR site in City B, I have another Windows 2003 license server with 75 Windows terminal server user CALS. I have two more Citrix Presentation 4.0 servers in City B.

These are my questions:
1) Since we live in hurricane alley, there may be a time or two I may be dependant on my DR site. If my Site A CALs are not available, how can I get access to those CALs?
2) If I consoldate the CALs to a 2003 server in City B, what are the bandwidth issues I may be looking at? Once the user logs, is any other info being sent to the license server throughout the day?
3) Is there another way to address the CAL issue?

Thanks in advance.
