Maybe their current consultant doesn't know how to order additional CALs for SBS 2003. (And neither do I - I think maybe you have to get 2008 CALs from open license and exercise downgrade rights. If I needed 2003 CALs, I'd start with my open license guy and see what he comes up with).

SBS 2003 has a limit of 75 CALs
There is another Microsoft product which has a similar name and is limited to 15 CALs but doesn't include Exchange

limitation - only the 75 user limit.
Does anyone know whether there a SBS 2003 version that was limited to 25
