in my opinion it depends on how is your environment actually designed and if you are using features like Linked mode multisite SSO etc.
You can always have separate vCenter server with dedicated portion of hosts for your pilot like you have in testing environment.
The main question is how much you want to mix these releases together...

And would it be good, to install the SSO Server component to a seperate machine??
Yes i.e. for better resiliency between vCenter server and SSO server (see: vCenter Single Sign-On Deployment Modes)
