SQL Server Licensing/Local Replica Questions

I obviously do not know much about SQL Server, as is evident by these 2 questions:

1) If a company just has one SQL Server db on a server that is accessed by front end applications on 10 users' computers, would the company have to buy just 1 SQL Server license or 11 licenses?

2) This question is completely unrelated.  Can users have local copies of a SQL Server db to use when a network connection is unavailable?  I assume the users would just synchronize as they would with Access?  How come I never hear about local copies with SQL Server?  There are several times I can think of when a user might want to use an application without access to a network connection.

Thanks as always!!
