Whenever I buy licensed Windows Server OS does it include CALs?

I need to buy a licensed windows os, do I have to buy CAL separately?

Exactly. It wouldn't make sense to include a CAL because not everybody needs them.

Guys  thank you for your informative comments surely I learned just by reading them. I am not sure if I do need CALs
Here's my case, I have a Domain Controller and all my client computers logs in to the domain, I have a file sharing, I don't published printer or fax in AD, for now there's nothing much services but AD, DNS, and DCHP.  Thanks again guys!
