Are there any disadvantages to having two WSUS servers?

We currently have 1 x workstations WSUS server and we want to bring in the patching of 9 x 2008 R2 servers which host our Citrix estate.

Would it be beneficial to have separate WSUS servers for workstation patching & server patching & should we build a new one with an SQL DB instance rather than a WID for the new server.

We will be using Solarwinds Patchmanager for our SW patching so we will be pointing that to the new WSUS server as well as our existing workstation WSUS server.

Any thoughts?
