You should read this Install Guide
http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX116573

There's a section that explains Planning your farm, where to place servers etc.

While this isn't always the case usually you have your citrix servers near the servers that have the applications.

Assuming your email, data server, etc. are in one location you would put your citrix server(s) there.  Now if you have one database or application in one location and a different one in another, then you would put them in separate locations, but most companies have their server room in a 'home' office and then the remote offices come in through citrix.

Your citrix server location depends on what kind of apps you are going to be serving. If those apps connect to databases on the backend, you may not want the citrix server at a remote location. Because your data would have to travel over the WAN and that's much slower. There are other considerations as well but that's one example.
