Server CAL licensing

I have 2 networks with 2 domain controllers. Each employee has 2 PCs connected to each network and 1 user name for each domain. UserA for domain A and UserB for domain B. there are 100 employees. How many CALs do I need? 100 or 200? I think 100 CALs enough because I have just 100 employees?

A Windows Server CAL is a license that grants access Windows Server. CALs are used in conjunction with Microsoft Windows Server OS licenses to allow Users and/or Devices to access and utilize the services of that windows server
- User CALs allow a single user access to Windows Server from an unlimited number of devices
- Device CALs allow an unlimited number of users to access Windows Server from a single device

I understand the difference between User and Device CAL. So, how name user CALs I need in my case?

Its like this since you have both two devices per user and also two different servers to connect to.
- User CALs allow a single user access to Windows Server from an unlimited number of devices
- Device CALs allow an unlimited number of users to access Windows Server from a single device' '
If User Cals then one per user per server = 100 X 2
If Device Cals then one per client device per user = 2 X 100
