If the copy of Firebird server is only started when needed, then there
will be no impact. If you start a copy on every machine, then will use
up a bit of memory space and may give a little slowdown, but nothing too
big until you start using that particular server.

I run server on many clients, and maintain a local copy of static
information. This reduces the load on the main server, and gives me a
speed increase as the network traffic is reduced. Just another way of
doing things.
