The profile is always larger on the local machine because temp and local files are included.  You need to get properties on the server for the size of the actual ROAMING portion  stored on the network.  You could do this at the server or on the share.

If users are configured to use roaming profile then go to the properties of the AD account of that user and go to the tab which reads "Terminal Services Profile".
The User Profile path mentioned is where that users profile would be located.
Simply browse to it and check the properties of that folder to know the actual size of that users Roaming Profile

Hope this helps.
