I'm assuming your are talking about User/Device CALs. They only apply if you are making connections using Remote Desktop Services.

If you want to establish multiple sessions at the same time per server, that's when you need to purchase user/device CALs. If not, no need to purchase.

This is a description of user and device CALs.  Each user or device will need a client access license to access any network resources.  However, you can use the user/device CAL to access all network servers.

Each member server will need a license for the version of Windows server it is running.  User/Device CALs are different from OS licenses.
