Terminal services and VNC are very different. VNC was created by Bell Labs in England as a cross platform remote desktop tool (UNIX to Windows, Windows to Windows, etc) Terminal services allows more than one user to be connected to the same machine at the same time, where pcanywhere and VNC do not allow that.
Terminal services are more stable (at least in Win2K) and use the RDP protocol. VNC uses TCP and UDP ports (I believe somewhere in the 1700 range, but not sure). I recommend Terminal services in a homogeneous Windows environment.
