You may well get a few different answers. A lot depends on how active your data centre is in terms of
1) switches being added/removed
2) vlans being added removed
Personally i would look to use VTP transparent in a DC if at all possible. It mitigates against the risk of wiping out the existing vlan database, and vlans only end up on switches where you want them and hence STP is limited in it's diameter.
This is assuming a L2 access/server layer to a L3 distro/core layer.
But there is nothing inherently wrong with VTP server/client in a DC, make sure you use a password though and prune/allow vlans on your trunk links.
