Assuming the server in site 2 is a member of your SBS domain, you just need enough SBS CALs:
"Q. I want to have additional Windows-based servers in my Windows Small Business Server 2003 domain. Do I need CALs for those servers?
A. Your Windows Small Business Server 2003 CALs cover you for any additional Windows-based servers in the domain. You do not need to buy additional CALs for them."
