you won't see per user licenses get handed out.  for per user, it just
checks that a valid licenses server is there and that's the end of it.  The
downisde is that if that server goes down, users can't connect where with a
per device, if the server is down but the device has a valid token, it's
good to go.

There's a good write up about TS Licensing at msterminalservices.org by
Michael Burke
