The computer name is there, it just isn't displayed by default. So simply use:
gc servers.txt|% {
  Get-Service -ComputerName $_ -DisplayName "SNMP Service" } |
  Where-Object { $_.status -eq "Running" } |
  select @{n="ServerName"; e={$_.MachineName}}, Status, Name, DisplayName

Open in new window

You should try to filter the service names as soon as possible to reduce the amount of exchanged data when using remote targets.

Try this (untested):
gc servers.txt|%{Get-Service -ComputerName $_| Where-Object { $_.status -match "running" -and $_.DisplayName -match "(SNMP Service)" | Select-Object *, @{name="servername"; expression="$($_.servername)"}}

Select-Object : Key "expression" cannot have an empty string value.

Then it's not called $_.servername. It's probably just $_

gc servers.txt|%{Get-Service -ComputerName $_| Where-Object { $_.status -match "running" -and $_.DisplayName -match "(SNMP Service)" | Select-Object *, @{name="servername"; expression="$_"}}

Being further down the pipeline at the point of the Select-Object command, we need to grab the information further upstream.  Something like below will work:
gc servers.txt|%{$comp = $_; Get-Service -ComputerName $_| Where-Object { $_.status -match "running" -and $_.DisplayName -match "(SNMP Service)"} | Select-Object *, @{name="servername"; expression="$($comp)"}}
