VNC is built into both OSX Server and OSX Client. On OSX Server it's enabled by default as is SSH and root. You'll see the option in the Sharing Preferences Pane on both Server and Client. It's called Remote Management. One of the ways to use it is to select "Connect to Server" from the Go Menu and key in vnc://Whatevertheipaddressis.
Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) is a separate application which extends this functionality into something far more:

[Download|http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/application_updates/server admintools1062.html] and install the Server Admin tools on the Mac OS X client, and [get the LOM configured|http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2773] on the Xserve box.
Then, as Tony states, launch Server Admin, enter the host and password, and share the Xserve server screen. You can do that via the VNC path Tony mentions, or (once you have Screen Sharing launched from Server Admin) you can control-click on the Screen Sharing icon, select Options, and select "Keep in Dock" to easily give yourself a short-cut to the tool.
