1. make one of them become "TS licensing server"
2. set "licensing server " in "TS Session Host Configuration" on both server

that is the way I did in windows server 2008 & 2008 R2

And you don't actually have to split them 15 by 15 if you are licensed with your CALs per user.  You only need as many CALs as you have users connecting to Server 2008 on your network.  If your CALs are per device, then you will need 30 for each server if all 30 people can/will connect to the server.
