Do you need License for OS (Windows) inside Docker

I am looking at creating a Docker (set) for applications that run on Windows. So, I need the Docker to have Windows OS. What license do I need for it? Or if I run the Docker on a Windows VM, does it make use of the same license from the Host?

    The container images will use the underlying OS license. Microsoft calls it supplmental license.
