Just 1 more thing, if you're not sure of what to choose, the per server setup can be changed at any time to per seat, while the per seat option can't be changed.

Per Server will limit the server to the number of connections you specify you own licenses for. Per seat will allow unlimited connections, but you legally have to own a license for each computer that connects to the server.
Basically a small organization with only one or two servers will benefit from per server, assuming not every user is using resources on the servers at the same time. A larger organization will benefit from per seat because the users can connect to multiple servers with one per seat license.
