AFAIK they don't.  but i have never really looked.  

Directory server is a special case.  There is Red Hat Directory Server  which 
is paid for and comes with support  etc.  Then there is Fedora Directory 
Server which is Free and comes with community support.  I already have buy in 
from the Directory Server guys to get Fedora Directory Server into EPEL.

Both use the same code base.
