Do you require BizTalk Server licenses for Enterprise SSO on SQL Server?

This question “Do you require BizTalk Server licenses for Enterprise SSO on SQL Server?” has come up several times for me at work recently, as apparently some software licence monitoring tools pick up the fact that SSO is installed on the SQL Server used for BizTalk, and that it does not have a licence.

As per the the answer on StackOverflow on the question What are the licencing requirements to run Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign On service(SSO) on a seperate server? and the as per the Microsoft Article it links to High Availability for the Master Secret Server which has the following note, no, you do not need BizTalk licences for your SQL server, just the OS and SQL licences.

To reduce the hardware resources for a highly available solution, you can add the master secret server as a cluster resource in your SQL Server cluster. Note that you do not need to purchase additional BizTalk Server licenses to install the SSO service on the computer running the SQL Server.
