Yes, it concerns to DC only,

so, If You will raise functional level from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 , You should have to only DC based on Windows 2008 or higher.
But You will be able to use Windows 2003 server as a domain member in Your domain ( which was raised to Windows 2008)


Please look this article, I think it will help You to understand the process:

As Biniek said,

Forest and Domain Functional level only applies to Domain controllers and not to member server.
