Microsoft SQL Server Licencing

So if Microsoft SQL Server licensed, does this means I can backup unlimited number of SQL servers? If not, where would I find out its limitations?

No. You would need to have

No. You would need to have one SQL Agent license per machine running SQL Server, regardless of whether the machine is physical or virtual. If you do not have sufficient licenses, you would get a message warning you that you do not have sufficient licenses. Even if you do not get the warning message, you should still get one SQL Agent license per machine running SQL Server. Otherwise, you would be in violation of licencing terms.

If you purchase 1 license,

If you purchase 1 license, you should limit to 1 SQL server only, but there is no counter that counts it for you. You can see all the SQl instance in the selection list on the server where you have the remote agent installed.
