SSH is mainly for your use.  If you are an administrator of the LTSP 
server and don't use SSH to get to it, then I see no reason why you 
couldn't disable it.  It certainly wouldn't disable the terminal 
clients, as they do not use SSH for local LTSP "X" operations.  The only 
thing I could think of that might be disabled is if you like to VNC into 
the LTSP server via SSH over the internet from home or something, but 
I'd imagine that access would only be for administrators anyway.

My advice is try and disable it and see if anyone complains and find out
