This is simply not true.
xterm does not require xorg-server.
I know because for years I've been using a setup
where the X server and the clients live
on different computers.
There is certainly no xorg-server installed
on the clients computer.

So, if the OP says that in his setup xterm
requires xorg-server, then something is clearly
wrong with that setup and it's a good idea
to fix it. This might be but a simptom of a
larger problem, who knows. If it were me,
I'd certainly want to get to the bottom of this.
