So can I have an additional domain controller in my SBS network?
Yes, it's entirely supported, possible, doable to have a an additional domain controller in your SBS network... and in fact, it doesn't even need to be another physical Windows server. You can set up a virtual server 'inside' a workstation in your network and have that be the additional domain controller. That's probably more something for your lab exercises, but it can be done.
Just remember the SBS box must hold all the FSMO roles, but yes, you can have an additional domain controller and all you need is a Windows 2003 license [or 2000 but I really prefer 2003 and the security settings better] as the SBS covers any client license access cals for that additional box.
