SMB 3.0 File Server for Hyper-V Failover Clusters

I have in my brand new lab (all 2012 R2)...

* 1 Server with 16 SATA hard drives that I am designating as my SMB 3.0 "SAN"   (SERVER1)
* 3 Hyper-V Hosts (soon to be in a failover cluster)  (SERVER2, SERVER3, SERVER4)

My questions:

1. Do I need to load the Hyper-V Role on SERVER1 along with the File and Storage Services Role.
2. Can I load the Hyper-V Role on SERVER1 just to have another host (and if so should it be part of the failover cluster I will create for SERVER2, SERVER3SERVER4?)

Thank you!
