Which server should I use to deploy the .wsp file?

Any SharePoint (Web or APP) Server across the farm that has SharePoint installed, and to avoid the confusion install it on the SharePoint Application Server that hosts the Central Administration.

Note: you can't install it on the DB server because it actually didn't have SharePoint installed!!
