The answer is going to depend on the server.
Is it just a print server ?
Is it a PDC ?
What services is it running ?
You need to provide more info.

Well one is just going to be acting as only a print server and the other is just a file server. No special services are going to be running on them that I can think of now. The file server will be users files and profiles.

Actually microsoft produced a form in which you enterd in the number of "resources" being used, users, printers, types of files, and it would estimate the amount of ram and hard drive space. You might check in their resource guide. I haven't looked at onme in quite a while, so I don't know if it's still in there.

The size and type of the server definately effect how much NT can handle.
Hope it helps
