Either use PowerShell, and run something like this one:
$objSearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
$objSearcher.Filter = '(OperatingSystem=Window*Server*)'
"Name","canonicalname","distinguishedname" | Foreach-Object {$null = $objSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add($_) }
$objSearcher.FindAll() | Select-Object @{n='Name';e={$_.properties['name']}},@{n='ParentOU';e={$_.properties['distinguishedname'] -replace '^[^,]+,'}} | out-file C:\Servers.txt

Open in new window

Which will list all servers, and the OU they're in to C:\servers.txt if you genuinely want all boxes that are servers. If it's just Domain Controllers you need, this command line will do it:
Nltest /dclist:%yourdomain.local% >> C:\DCs.txt

Open in new window

You could try netdom like this:
netdom query SERVER
netdom query DC

Open in new window

But most or all of your workstations are probably listed as servers too, as they run the "server" service for admin shares etc.
