select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.Client is null

    You'd be better off doing another Collection with a Query for Server 2003, then exclude it from your collection.

    You can actually look at this script, as it would create all of the collections you'd probably want, then create your own with Includes & Excludes to get your desired group of machines: https://github.com/prae1809/PowerShell-Scripts/tree/master/OperationalCollections

    Also note, Collections are not SQL, they are WQL: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/servers/manage/create-queries
