I have never heard of any issues with different cards, as the citrix/TS session uses the Windows driver for the remote sessions.  The only issue would probably be if the card is using any resources but even that would be minimal I am sure.

The next version of XenApp will better use the server's graphic card.  Until then, no, it makes little difference.  If the graphics card will only support 16-bit color at 800x600 resolution, then you will have issues for your users if they want to use higher color depth or higher resolution.
