I did come across this post seems clear enough Windows Server 2012 Virtualisation Licensing Scenarios

its all change with 2012 and really is quite simple - datacenter licensing makes sense if you have lots of VM's - there is a tipping point to where lots of standard licenses is cheaper.

Yeah, we've decided that we're going to get 3x 2012 Datacenter licenses. 1 for each VM host as the new 2012 licensing is per server rather than per CPU.

Not quite right...

Yes, you're right. Luckily our hosts are only dual CPU
