3-4 servers probably wouldn't run the auction house at peak hours. If you were to count the individual servers (remember, the common image of this big black refridgerator sized box is not a server, it's a case that can contain a dozen or more individual servers) that make an entire realm work, it's likely going to be well over a hundred. Even if you count them in groups, it's still going to be more than 3 or 4. You've got one or more running: the mail, the auction house, probably the bank, several running the each continent, etc. One of the things I've always wanted to see from Blizzard is a tour of one of the realm's physical locations. I'm sure there's some information they'd like to keep private, but still, I'd like to see just how much room it actually takes to house.
