If all masters are up and running and you do not have Capacity ( Complete Edition) license, you need a license for each of them.

You can only use master server license on DR server if the DR server is not used for more than 30 Testing Days in a year.

See Symantec's DR policy doc:

Usually you need to license each server for legal compliance. As mentioned by JD, you can contact Symantec Customer Care. You can also reach out to your Symantec reseller, they will have the licensing requirements as well.
