Dumb Question:Is the server automatically protected if the Protection Center is installed?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a server that is hosting the Protection Center, but when I list the Pcs and Servers, it doesn't show up. Is the hosting server automatically protected, or do I have to install the endpoint protection client software?

You need to install a client on the server as well.

Protection Center is a Web-based console with single-sign on capability that enables you to access and manage multiple, supported Symantec products. For example, you can manage both Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Brightmail Gateway in Protection Center (requires Internet Explorer 7 or later.

This is available once you install the SEPM.

Now you need to create an install package and push to your server.

Logging on to the Symantec Protection Center (SPC) 1.0 Dashboard for the first time from the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) Web Console

If your management console is called "Symantec Protection Center", you are still running the older SEP SBE 12.0 version. Check the "About..." link in the console for the version.

That version is obsolete and replaced by SEP SBE 12.1; the management console from that version is called "Symantec Endpont Protection Manager"

Upgrade to SEP SBE 12.1 at your earliest convenience but I would suggest waiting for the upcoming RU2 release.
