The X "server" terminology is a little non-intuitive; the X server
happens to be the thing that you run on the console you're sitting in
front of. So you actually don't want an X server on the second
machine, since it (presumably) doesn't have a physical display. But
you can still remotely run X applications from that machine; try
ssh -X second-system
(where second-system is the hostname), any X programs you run from
that shell on the remote machine should appear on your local display.
