Should the following accounts have sysadmin permissions?

Any service account to run SQL services
NT Service \MSSQLSERVER
NT Service\ SQLSERVERAGENT

Or is it more advisable to review the actual permissions needed for each and limit them accordingly?

From SQL Installation Security Best Practices:

<<
•Run separate SQL Server services under separate Windows accounts. Whenever possible, use separate, low-rights Windows or Local user accounts for each SQL Server service. For more information, see Configure Windows Service Accounts and Permissions.
