No, you can install the master server on any server. Making the server puppet is just a default that the client looks for automatically. In my environment, the host name puppet is just a c-name that points to the real host name.

You can configure the name of your puppet server on any agents that connect using 'puppet config set server mypuppetserver.mydomain, or directly editing the puppet.conf file
