Windows 2012 Server question

We are planning to acquire two new servers for our company.  Both are going to be Windows 2012 Servers.  

1. Windows 2012 Server - PDC - will be used as fileserver
2. Windows 2012 Server + SQL 2012 - SDC - Application server
3. Data storage - Connected to both the servers but disks assigned to each server

My question is that;

1. Do we need to get the same number of Windows 2012 CALs for both the servers?  Can we just get 20 CALS for the PDC and only the default CAL for SDC since no one will be logging in to the server per se.

2. Does SQL server CALs need to be the same as user CALS?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the response Lee.   I get the CAL situation for the Server 1.  If I am using another Server as apps server, that also need the same number of Windows users license or just SQL server licenses?
