Don't install LOB applications on your domain controller.

If you plan on running QuickBooks in a client/server architecture where the client portion resides on individual PCs then you do not need to configure terminal services anywhere. But if you want thin-client portion to reside on a server and for users to access the server then that will require using a remote desktop and deploying TS/RDS.
