usually I recommend to the customers running WSUS on a dedicate server because:
- when you have single server and running multiple service on this for example: APP server,AD server,WSUS and ... increasing LAN traffic for this single server
- there is no tolerant in this example I mean (if any problem occur for this server WSUS couldn't continue it's job and all server going away and network is down )
one customer ask me a document from microsoft that say it is true.
anybody could help me?
first of all I need to prove this with sufficient documents from microsoft, secondly do you know more reason for this issue??

I would not expect to see any MS documentation which states that a dedicated server is a requirement.
Consider that SBS is "everything on one box" !
SBS is a very carefully crafted "single-box" solution, it offers many MS product technologies, all hosted together, including WSUS, AD, etc.
application/service compatibility requires careful implementation/deployment planning and design, to avoid conflict.
co-hosting tends to introduce ongoing complexity, requiring deep understanding of the multiple products and inter-dependence.
it can be done, but it requires lots of time, lots of competence, etc.
