Slightly more touchy, depending on your point of view.  You might 
consider it prudent to install a copy of the source (perhaps if only in 
zipped archive form) alongside the binaries on the servers, or to ensure 
that technicians charged with administering these machines have access 
to a copy of the source.

Certainly the clients would not need to be issued with *modified* 
versions of the source, since they haven't been modified, but it would 
still be wise to ensure that a location where the original source can 
easily be found (perhaps AT&T's website) is pointed out somewhere in the 
documentation.

However, for the application originally posted, the servers would be 
distributed rather than the clients.
