If you separate licensable services from SQL Server and install them on different OSE, you will have to count same license as the SQL Server, if it is SQL Standard Edition, to cover services you will need Standard, if it is SQL Enterprise Edition, you will need Enterprise also for the services.

The software components of a single SQL Server license cannot be separated. Any OSE running any of the licensed components of SQL Server, requires a license. For example, if the SQL Server DB is deployed in one OSE and SQL Server RS is deployed in another, both OSEs must be fully licensed for SQL Server accordingly.

Assume that the DB is running on one OSE and Reporting in another
Assume that you haven't licensed the entire virtual cluster for either core-limited or unlimited virtualisation
Enterprise Edition: Both OSEs need to be licensed. This is quite possibly the worst use of expensive Enterprise core licenses ever :)
Standard Edition per core: Both OSEs need to be licensed with a minimum of 4 cores (2 license packs) per OSE. So a minimum of 8 cores for the above scenario.
Standard Edition Server/CAL: Both OSEs need a Server license, and all users benefitting from Reporting Services require a CAL
